    The California Highway Patrol issued a Sig-alert Saturday after a three-car crash on southbound State Route 17 killed a three-year-old boy.

    Seven people – including three children – were taken to the hospital after the collision that occurred just before 1 p.m. near the freeway's lark Avenue Exit.

    CHP officials spoke to NBC Bay Area and informed us that the three-year-old boy was strapped in a car seat in a Toyota Sequoia.

    According to the CHP traffic log, a white truck, a white SUV and a small grey vehicle were involved in the crash.

    The left lane was closed, but reopened around 2:45 p.m. 

    It’s possible that one of the people who was injured is in critical condition, the CHP said. It's unknown if that is the person who died.

    Further details were not immediately available.
