SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Several people, including three children were injured in a crash in Salt Lake City Thursday night. 

Salt Lake City Police Lt. Dave Cracroft said the crash happened around 9 p.m. when for some unknown reason the driver of a Ford Focus, carrying two adults and three children,  stopped in the middle of the intersection at 1000 S. Redwood Rd. 

The car was t-boned by a southbound vehicle carrying two adults. 

Two children and the two adults in the Focus received minor injuries however one girl, approximately 2-3 years old, was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
