SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. -

A three-year-old girl injured in a collision earlier this week in Robertson County remains in critical condition at a Nashville hospital.

Wyncie Bouge is still on life support Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, according to a Springfield police lieutenant. She has been given a 50% chance of survival.

Her mother, 28-year-old Megan Bouge, and two-week-old brother were also injured in the crash Monday evening that claimed the lives of Megan Bouge's mother and Mandricus Darden, 27, of Springfield.

According to a Facebook page created following the crash called Prayers for the Bouge Family, baby Emmett has been moved to a regular room and is doing very well.

Megan's surgery went well and doctors are hopeful that no more surgeries are needed. She was taken off a ventilator Thursday afternoon.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Authorities said Darden crossed the center line and struck Bouge's head-on vehicle but they're unsure why.

At the time of the crash, Darden, who has a lengthy criminal history, was driving on a suspended licensee.

Darden was arrested in Nashville in 2011 for two robberies.  He has previous convictions for cocaine possession and unlawful weapon possession.
