A 1-year-old girl was seriously hurt in a car crash in Richmond Hill on Monday.

A minivan carrying the child hit another vehicle — a black Honda — at the intersection of 102nd Street and 91st Avenue around 2 p.m.

Police say the Honda was traveling northbound on 102nd Street when it was hit on the side by the minivan.

The girl was not in a car seat at the time of the accident, police say, and the driver of the minivan was given a summons. Police could not confirm that a relative was driving, although published reports say the child’s grandmother was in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

The child was immediately rushed to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in a police vehicle and later transferred to North Shore University Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition as of Wednesday morning .

The Honda involved in the accident belonged to D & E Driving School in Woodhaven. The driver of the car was an instructor at the school and was not injured in the accident.
