LOS ANGELES -- Doctors said Wednesday
that a 4-year-old hospitalized in critical condition may not survive
after a "road rage" incident on Tuesday, according to police.
"The 4-year-old child is in extremely grave condition. We don't
even know if the child is going to make it. Doctors are very skeptical
on that. They're doing everything they can, but it does not look good
for the 4-year-old," Capt. Ronald Marbrey of the LAPD.
The child's 2½-month-old sibling and 31-year-old mother, all
natives of India, were also hospitalized Tuesday, KNBC's Robert Kovacik

3:12 p.m. at 17119 W. Sherman Way, between Balboa Boulevard and Louise
Avenue, at 3:12 p.m. Tuesday, said Ron Myers of the Los Angeles Fire
"Witnesses tell us that two individuals were driving at a high
rate of speed westbound, here, on Sherman Way. It appeared to witnesses
that they were jockeying for position," Marbrey said.
