A two-month-old infant was seriously injured Wednesday morning in Marshalltown after the 25-year-old driver accidentally mistook the gas pedal for the brake pedal and drove into a basement apartment.
The child was airlifted to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines with serious injuries. There were five people inside of the apartment at the time of the crash and they all sustained various injuries. They were transported by ambulance to Marshalltown Medical & Surgical Center.
According to the Marshalltown Police Department, the driver will not likely face criminal charges since the accident occurred on private property.
