A 4-year-old boy tossed out of a car seat and through a window during an SUV crash on the Santa Ana (I5) Freeway survived the ordeal virtually unscathed, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said today.
The boy made a soft landing in some ice plants about 20 feet away after the vehicle hit a wall on the shoulder of the southbound 5, near Magnolia Street, about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, CHP Officer George Salas told the Orange County Register.
“How he didn't hit the concrete is beyond me,” Salas said. “He should buy a lottery ticket.”
The boy was taken to a hospital as a precaution, Salas said. The boy's parents were uninjured.
