The Mississippi Highway Patrol is still investigating a morning crash in Prentiss County that has left an infant in critical condition.

Troopers responded to Mississippi Highway 4 near New Site about 9 a.m. Upon arriving it appeared Matthew K. Mathis, 25, of Booneville, was traveling west on Hwy. 4 when he apparently lost control of his 2000 Lincoln, ran off the road and collided into a tree.

An infant in the vehicle an Mathis were both transported to NMMC. The infant was later transferred to Le Bonheur in Memphis with serious injuries.

The condition now is unknown at this time.

The child was properly restrained.
