RAYMOND, Maine (AP) _ A 6-month-old boy was seriously hurt but survived after he was ejected from his mother's car during a crash and tossed 25 feet into the snow.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says the boy's mother, 19-year-old Chynna Blaney, drove through a stop sign in Raymond just before 5 p.m. Thursday and was struck by a pickup truck.

The boy was thrown from his safety seat in the back of the car and hurled into the snow.

The driver of the truck, 35-year-old Angie Horler of New Gloucester, told police she saw something flying from the other vehicle, went to investigate, and found the boy.

Blaney and her son were hospitalized with serious injuries. Horler required treatment for minor injuries, while her two children, ages 2 and 5, were unhurt.
