ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says a 4-year-old boy ejected from an SUV in a freeway crash survived after landing in a soft bed of plants.
CHP Officer George Salas tells the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/1dLcCi3 ) the accident happened Wednesday night when the boy's father swerved to avoid a tire tread on southbound Interstate 5 in Anaheim.
The driver lost control and smashed into a concrete wall.
Salas says the toddler was thrown out of his safety seat, though the rear window and onto the greenery about 20 feet away.
The boy was taken to a hospital as a precaution but was treated only for scratches and bruising.
His mother and father were not injured in the crash.
