Two-year-old found in car after Roxburgh Park crash


Police believe a two-year-old child seriously injured in a car crash in Melbourne’s outer north wasn’t properly restrained.

Paramedics arrived at the scene of the two-car crash at the corner of Roxburgh Park Drive and Matthews Cresent shortly after 8pm on Thursday night.

There was no sign of a car seat.

However, a two-year-old child was then found in the footwell of one of the vehicles.

Police believe the child was not properly restrained in the car and was thrown around the car in the crash.

The child was taken to the Royal Children’s Hospital, thankfully the injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

The driver of the car the child was in – believed to be aged in his 30s – also suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

He’s in hospital in a stable condition.

The driver of the other car was assessed at the scene.
