A two-month-old baby boy is dead and another man is in custody after a car accident in South Australia.
Emergency services rushed to Lucky Hit Road and Warren Road in Birdwood, east of Adelaide, just after noon on Saturday after a station wagon collided with a van.
A man, a woman and two young children were in the station wagon and were all taken to Lyell McEwin Hospital.

The two-year-old boy was taken to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Both men in the van sustained minor injuries.
The station wagon driver, a 42-year-old Victorian man, was arrested by Major Crash officers and charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
He was released on bail to appear before the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on April 22.
The child’s death will bring the number of lives lost on the roads in South Australia to 25 in 2020, the same number last year at this time.
