SUNSET, Utah – Police said a 3-year-old girl was critically injured and her brother and father suffered minor injuries after a vehicle crash in Sunset Thursday.

Her 2-year-old brother was shaken up and suffered cuts and bruises, and the 29-year-old father, who was driving the vehicle, suffered cuts and bruises, as well as a broken nose that may have been caused by the air bag deployment.
