DENVER — The newborn girl who suffered a skull fracture in a rollover crash in Aurora Monday was moved out of intensive care Thursday.

There’s something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving.

Lizbeth McComas’ mother, Shalimar McComas says her baby continues to improve.

Shalimar was driving on Parker Rd. just south of I-225 when another vehicle came speeding up behind her and crashed into her car.

Both vehicles rolled over in the collision. Police say it’s a miracle the 5-week-old girl survived the violent crash. Shalimar only had minor injuries.

Police also say the fact the baby was properly restrained in a car seat is what saved her life.

The other driver, 21-year-old William Page III of Denver, was thrown from his vehicle. He remains hospitalized at the Medical Center of Aurora.

Police say Page was driving over 100 miles an hour when he hit McComas’ vehicle.
