A woman driving a Buick Regal crashed into a poll in Aurora, killing one child and critically injuring six others.
Bev Husted of Aurora Medical Center said a seventh child, age ten, was in fair condition.
The other children were at Children's Hospital which refused to release any information on their conditions.
Aurora police, who said the driver herself also was hurt in the accident last night, did not return calls seeking comment.
Lieutenant Rob McGregor of the Aurora Police Department says there were too many people in the car.
The ages of the children range from two to 12. None of the children was wearing seat beats.
The accident is still under investigation.
