MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A 7-year-old is facing life-threatening injuries after being ejected from an SUV onto I-85 Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say three people were inside the SUV when another car made an abrupt lane change. The SUV swerved to avoid a collision, and the SUV flipped. The 7-year-old was then ejected from the vehicle.

The driver and another child inside the automobile were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic was delayed beginning at the Ann St. exit (MM3) on I-85 North, but crews have since cleared the area of debris.
