      4-month-old baby killed in car wreck

      Lumberton police say a 4-month-old boy has died from injuries suffered in a single car accident Wednesday afternoon.

      The car ran off the road and flipped over into a canal on Linkhaw Road in Lumberton, according to Major Tommy Barnes.

      He says some water seeped into the car. Rescue crews were unable to pull the victims out of the vehicle because it was so deep in the canal, so a wrecker had to tow it out.

      The grandmother and her infant grandson were taken to a hospital.

      The baby died Thursday morning.

      His grandmother remains in the hospital. Her condition isn't being released.
