A two-and-a-half-year-old child was transported by air ambulance around noon today after suffering head injuries as a result of falling from a moving vehicle.

Turlock police received report of the incident at approximately 12:48 p.m. when a witness saw the young child fall out of the moving vehicle on Christoffersen Parkway near Crowell Road, said Turlock police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis.

The witness reported that the vehicle then stopped and an occupant got out and placed the child back in the vehicle before it drove off, said Lewis.

Officers located the vehicle in the 3900 block of Geer Road, where they found the two-and-a-half-year-old girl with head injuries, said Lewis.

An ambulance was immediately called to the scene, but medical services determined an air ambulance would be necessary due to the extent of the injuries.

The child was airlifted from Dale Pinkney Park, located on Cherry Blossom Lane, to a hospital.

Early reports indicate the child opened the car door and fell out, said Lewis. It is unknown if the child was restrained in a car seat at the time of the incident.

No arrests have been made and the incident remains under investigation.

    I honestly think the parents or adults in the car are guilty to some degree. They pick up the toddler and then.jist drive away not near or in direction of hostpital.. probably a bunch of undocumented idiots who know they are in the wrong. Probably gonna take the baby home n say it fell off the front steps or something. An all the stupid girls on fb bragging how their toddler can unlock his carseat.. and you allow your your child to do that Why???? If your child has enough presser in his tiny fingers to unlock the button between their legs then you have a cheap made carseat and should garbage it. Use child lock on your damn car and dont let your kids drive around with stupid shyyt for brains people that are too stupid to know how to properly secure your child… this idiots in the car need to be in jail and child/children taken away they are obviously to dumb to know right from wrong.. just my opinion and your all entitled to yours.

    I’m sure somebody will blame the child, the car, the seat belts, the car seat, the door locks, or the police.
    No one would ever blame themselves for poor parenting.

  6. guest says:

    Here’s my assumption: The adult driving the vehicle was willfully negligent in endangering this child. I would be shocked if this child is not abuse. Poor parenting is a kind comment.

    I think what “Guest-Jail them” said was dead on correct if it wasn’t some non american illegal I will be surprised. No one in their right mind would allow this to happen and Im not sorry to say that ALL illegals are not in their right american “mind-set” why?? Because they are not american!!!!! We as americans see things totally differently than those of other countries and vise-versa. So don’t blame a commenter of being racist simply because of their opinions which in my opinion are 100% accurate. You must be an illegal yourself or if you’re not then you are twisted and part of the reason we are being smothered by these “people” you probably voted on their being allowed to over populate our country and you are as pitiful as they are!!!! Just my opinion!!!!!

    To all of those accusing the undocumented idiots, what’s the excuse of the documented, Please read the news, idiots don’t come in undocumented ONLY, they come in all races and nationalities
    It’s not that undocumented are idiots, it’s that they are afraid of the punishment an accident like this can bring them, they are already condemned because they are undocumented, no body cares about what really happened. When my daughter was two years old I could not keep her in her car seat, I had to change them so many times in an attempt to keep her safe, but no matter what I did she got out, I would be driving and before I knew it she was all over the back seat. There were times it took me forever to get somewhere because I had to continually stop and tie her in. She was a little Houdini.

  12. Shelly-/guest, when is your next KKK mtg? says:

    It takes less than 2 hours for someone idiot like you, to make a racist comment. Dolores, thank you for trying to bring up valid points, Shelly has no comprehension about. Is there anyway for the editors of this website to learn how to spell, use correct grammar, etc? The level of ignorance is embarrassing.

  13. Joe B says:

    How can you be critical of bad grammar while utilizing bad grammar?
