Three children were hospitalized after a multi car crash in Anne Arundel County.

On Friday, at a little after 4:55 p.m., officers were called to a multi car crash on Southern Maryland Boulevard (Route 4) at Lower Pindell Road in Lothian.

According to the investigation, a Honda sedan was traveling northbound on Route 4 and attempted to turn left and crossover the southbound travel lanes to Lower Pindell Road, when it was struck by a Pontiac traveling south. The Pontiac struck the Honda on the right rear door, which caused the Honda to spin and leave the roadway.

The driver of the Honda, 29-year-old Diana Ruiz Luengas, of Lothian, sustained minor injuries. However, there were three small children in the rear seat of Luengas’ car. The children were all taken to an area hospital for treatment.

According to officials, all three children, a 10-year-old, a 7-year-old and a 3-year-old, all suffered severe injuries.

The driver of the Pontiac, 24-year-old Robert Michael Morris, Jr., of Portersville, Pa., also sustained minor injuries.

The preliminary cause of the crash is the Honda failed to yield the right of way. The Traffic Safety Section is handling the investigation and will be reviewed by the State’s Attorney.
