A father and son suffered injuries after a car crash on the New Youngs Bay Bridge on Thursday morning.

Police said the driver of a Volkswagen Jetta crossed the center line and crashed into a Ford Fiesta.

The Warrenton Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to extricate a 6-year-old boy and his father from the Ford Fiesta. They were taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital in Astoria. The boy had serious injuries and was flown to a Portland area hospital.

The driver of the Volkswagen Jetta declined any medical treatment.

Police referred the case to the district attorney's office.
