A two-month-old infant is apparently uninjured after a sports utility vehicle broadsided the car she was riding in.

According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, the baby's mother, Janice Ayala Torres of Hesperia, 22, was driving the pair in the family's 1998 Honda Civic on Thursday, July 23, shortly before noon, when the incident occurred.

Torres was stopped at the intersection of Sequoia Avenue and 11th Street -- which only has stop signs facing two of the four directions -- when another driver, Candace Howell of Phelan, 40, came down Eleventh in her 2003 Ford Excursion -- a direction that does not have any stop signs.

Torres reportedly pulled out in front of Howell, and the vehicles collided.

Torres sustained major injuries and was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center. Her child was properly restrained in a car seat and did not appear to be injured, according to officials, but was taken to Loma Linda by ambulance as a precaution.

The department's Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating.
