Muhit drove into the intersection and into the path of the incoming 2011 Chevy Silverado traveling southbound.

Officials say Muhit had nine total passengers in her vehicle, which holds eight people. A 10-year-old child was found in the vehicle with no seatbelt and two other adults were seated in the vehicle without seatbelts.

Six occupants from Muhits vehicle were brought to hospitals, two of which had critical injuries, and are currently at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Officials say Muhit was given a traffic citation for failing to yield to the stop sign and for having a passenger under age 12 with no seatbelt. The other two adults in the car were also issues citations for not wearing seatbelts.
