WATERBORO, Maine (AP) — Police have charged a box truck driver for his role in a crash in Maine that left a 10-month old seriously injured.

The crash happened Thursday morning on Route 202 in Waterboro when an SUV was hit from behind by the box truck while attempting to make a left turn.

Witnesses told police the truck driver did not make an effort to slow down before the crash.

An infant who was in the SUV has been hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say the baby's mother, 37-year-old Ellen Kennedy, suffered minor injuries.

The 53-year-old box truck driver, of Lynn, Massachusetts, has been charged with aggravated driving to endanger.

His arraignment is scheduled for Friday.
