The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 4-year-old is in critical condition following a four-vehicle crash on the John Kilpatrick Turnpike Thursday afternoon.

According to OHP, a car driven by 39-year-old Phillip Patterson, of Wellston, was traveling westbound approaching the Santa Fe Toll Plaza when he failed to slow down and rear-ended a car, causing a chain reaction involving two more vehicles.

Patterson was transported to a local hospital, and was treated and released.

The driver and passengers of the second vehicle, a 36-year-old female and two children, ages 8 and 4, were all injured. The female and the 8-year-old were treated and released. But OHP says, the 4-year-old was admitted in critical condition.

The driver of the third vehicle was treated and released from a local hospital. The driver of the fourth vehicle was uninjured.

According to OHP, seat belts were used in all the vehicles involved. Also, the child restraints were properly equipped.
