A baby has died of injuries suffered in Thursday's head-on crash in Quebec.

Quebec police said the young child, who was taken to hospital in critical condition, died Friday morning.

That child and three other people were inside a car that swerved into oncoming traffic on Highway 105 near Maniwaki and hit a pickup truck around 8:50 a.m. Thursday.

The car's female driver remains in hospital with serious but non life-threatening injuries, while another woman and a four-year-old suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck also suffered minor injuries.

Police said they believe ice and slippery road conditions played a factor.
