Three young children were hospitalized after a head-on collision in south Fulton County.
 
The two car accident occurred at 3:45 pm on Friday, May 21.  A Lincoln Aviator was travelling south on Buffington Road when it hydroplaned and struck a northbound Buick Park Avenue near the intersection with Flat Shoals Road.
 
A two-year-old and a three-year-old were ejected from the Aviator.  The three-year-old sustained serious injuries and both children were taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. It is not known if the children were securely restrained in child safety seats.  The driver of the Buick was unharmed.
 
The driver of the Buick was taken to South Fulton Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.   His passenger was also injured and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.  An infant was also in the car.  She was restrained in a car seat and appeared to be uninjured, but was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston for evaluation.
 
The crash is under investigation, but  officials say the accident is being blamed on wet roads and rainy weather.
