Canton — Police are investigating a Thursday crash in which a 4-year-old child was injured.

The crash happened at about 6:54 p.m. in the area of Haggerty and Monument Boulevard, officials said.

According to a preliminary investigation, a 2013 Mazda driven by a 40-year-old Belleville woman made a U-turn in front of a 2006 Saturn Ion. A 25-year-old Windsor resident was driving the Saturn.

Police said the driver of the Mazda and her passenger, the child, were taken to a hospital. The driver was treated and released but the 4-year-old is in stable condition at the hospital.

The Saturn's driver suffered only minor injuries.

Authorities said it appears alcohol was a factor in the crash.
