 Authorities say a 19-month-old boy was killed in a two-vehicle collision in Tulsa.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says an 18-year-old woman was driving west on a Tulsa street Wednesday afternoon before stopping and waiting to make a left turn. Troopers say a large truck was blocking her view of eastbound traffic, and when she turned left she pulled in front of a pickup. The two vehicles collided.

The boy, who was in the car with the woman, was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in critical condition. He was pronounced dead on arrival. The woman was uninjured and an 18-year-old passenger in her vehicle refused treatment.

The other vehicle's driver was also uninjured.
