An 8-month-old baby named Joshua and his mother Yenny Carbajal were killed as passengers in a BMW that crashed into a tree on Constitution Boulevard in Salinas at 1:00 a.m. on Sunday, and the driver remains in critical condition, reported local news source KSBW.
According to the news article, a BMW was traveling along Constitution Boulevard at about 1:00 a.m. on Sunday early morning.
Authorities identified the victims inside the BMW vehicle as 22-year-old Yenny Carbajal, and her infant, 8-month child, named Joshua Carbajal.
Officials said that the 23-year-old male driving the BMW crashed into a tree along the road for unknown reasons. As a result, he suffered critical injuries and was transported to a local hospital. His name was not released in the news article, although sources said that he was Yenny Carbajal’s boyfriend, and not the father of the child inside the vehicle during the car crash.
