NORTH PATCHOGUE, NY – A two-month-old boy suffered critical injuries in a crash in North Patchogue on Saturday night. The child’s mother, 33-year-old Deliela Gonzalez attempted to make a U-turn from the right lane on North Ocean Avenue in her Honda sedan, and collided with a Mercedes in the left lane.
Gonzales was driving with four children in the car, including two-month-old Jayden, a four-year-old, an eight-year-old, and a thirteen-year-old. Jayden was transported to Long Island Community Hospital before being transferred to Stony Brook University Hospital. He suffered a spinal cord injury, head trauma, and swelling in the brain, according to authorities, and his condition has not improved.
The other children and the mother were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Mercedes also suffered minor injuries in the crash.
