An 8-year-old boy suffered life-threatening injuries Saturday afternoon when his family’s car and a tractor-trailer collided in Marana.
Bystanders were administering CPR to the boy when paramedics arrived at about 3:30 p.m., said Capt. Adam Goldberg, spokesman for the Northwest Fire District.
The boy was sitting in the back seat of the four-door Toyota Yaris, directly behind his father, who was driving, when the crash happened. The car was hit on the driver’s side.
The father was critically injured also, Goldberg said.
Two other children were in the back seat.
A 14-year-old girl was in serious but stable condition Saturday evening. A 10-year-old boy had minor injuries. The mother of the children, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, was uninjured, Goldberg said.
The family was on its way to a Marana pumpkin patch when the crash occurred in front of the venue, on West Kirby Hughes and North Wentz roads, Goldberg said.
Everyone in the car was wearing a seat belt.
