The driver, an adult male whose name has not yet been released, is in critical condition, George said. The toddler is in good condition.

An adult female passenger is in good condition in Obici Hospital,

Initial investigations show that the driver veered off the left side of the road, then overcorrected and ran off the road a second time before hitting the tree, George said.
