A witness said a baby was ejected from a vehicle in a wreck on Interstate 77 in Jackson County near Kenna and was found face-down along the highway strapped to a car seat.
A dispatcher said the baby and two others were transported to the hospital.
The accident happened about 4 p.m. and shut down the northbound lanes of the interstate, an emergency dispatcher said. The lanes were later reopened.
The witness said a red pickup truck was heading southbound and veered into the median and started rolling. A woman was thrown over the hill, and a baby in a car seat was also thrown from the vehicle and found face-down in the car seat along the road. The man who was driving also was thrown from the vehicle, the witness said. The witness said he helped the woman and the baby.
