SANTA MONICA (CNS) - The CHP today blamed a truck driver for excessive speed at a blind curve, and causing Friday's Santa Monica freeway tunnel crash that killed a 2-year-old boy from Las Vegas.

The child's name has not been released, pending full family notification. A child who was also hurt by the truck was in critical condition today, and five other people who were also inside a stricken minivan were also hurt to varying degrees in the crash.
