COLUMBIA — A car carrying 10 people near the I-70-U.S. 63 interchange slid on wet pavement Sunday evening before hitting a guardrail.

All of the passengers were injured either during the crash or shortly afterward when the car was struck at about 5:30 p.m. as it sat in the middle of westbound Interstate 70.

None of the injuries was life-threatening, according to Columbia Police spokeswoman Latisha Stroer.

Two of the passengers, one a toddler who hadn't been secured in a car seat, were ejected through a rear window. The driver of the second car was also injured.

In a news release, Stroer reported that the 2013 Ford Expedition carrying the group was driven by Ramiro Pastor-Tlalasmonteco, 22, of Garden Grove, Calif.

The second car was driven by Catherine Perkins, 49, of Prairie Home, Mo.

Those ejected from the Ford Expedition were Mylo Pastor-Castaneda, 1, and Gizelle Pastor-Castaneda, whose age was not given. Neither was wearing a safety device.

Other passengers were Elizabeth Castaneda-Yadire, 20; Justin Catalan, 4; Melissa Nava, 12; Leslie Nava, 5; Yamir Nava, 7; Priana Tlalasmonteco, 47; and Patricio Pastor-Requeno, 50.

All but Elizabeth Castenada-Yadire were wearing seat belts. Perkins was also wearing a seat belt.

They were taken to University Hospital.

The driver of the Ford Expedition was cited for failing to secure a child less than 8 years old in a restraint device.
