A mother is in critical condition following a crash that sent three of her children flying onto the Taconic State Park.

The incident took place around 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 when a 2010 Honda driven by Michael Morrison, 51, of Queens, rolled over on the parkway near Underhill Road in Yorktown, said State Police Spokesman Trooper AJ Hicks.

The mother, who was a front-seat passenger, 51-year-old Maria Morrison is in critical condition at Westchester Medical Center, he said.

The couple's three children, ages 12, and two 9-year-olds, who were ejected from the vehicle, "miraculously" only received minor injuries, Hicks said.

Hicks said initial facts show the children were not properly restrained in the vehicle.

No criminal charges have been filed. The crash is under investigation.

State police were assisted at the scene by the Yorktown Heights Volunteer Fire Department, Yorktown Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Empress Emergency Medical Services, and numerous other agencies.
