The accident happened on westbound State Route 18, east of I-5, at about 7 p.m., when the driver of a white Chevrolet SUV reportedly struck three vehicles that were stopped in traffic.
A 3-year-old child riding in a silver sedan was taken to the hospital with critical, life-threatening wounds.
It is unclear if anyone else was hurt in the crash.
At this time, authorities do not believe that the at-fault driver was under the influence.
