AURORA, Colo. - A six-week-old baby injured in a roll-over crash in Aurora this week is expected to make a full recovery.
The Denver Post reports Lizbeth McComas' neck brace has been removed and she's able to eat.
Lizbeth was in a car seat in a Dodge Caliber when a red Jeep hit the back of the car near Lehigh Avenue on Monday, according to Aurora Police Lt. Chuck DeShazer.
The baby’s mother, Shalimar McComas, 35, of Aurora, was driving the Dodge at the time, DeShazer said.
"She was moaning, I'd never heard that sound from her. She was making a faint moaning, there was blood coming from her nose and her head," said Lizbeth's mother. "I was so grateful when I heard her because I thought, she’s alive."
"My wife came out amazing she was so strong in the whole situation, pulling our daughter out and everything like that," said the baby's father, Jason McComas.
The driver of the Jeep was identified as William Page, III, 21, of Denver. He was thrown from the vehicle and taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Police believe Page was speeding.
