A BABY injured in a horror crash which claimed the lives of her father and sister could be released from hospital early next week, police said today.
The 18-month-old suffered a fractured skull in Monday's early morning collision on the A14 and was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital.
Her sister, eight-year-old Erica Martins Andrade, and her father Jose Gomes Costa, 30, were both killed when they were thrown from a Peugeot car.
Mr Costa had just collected his family from Luton Airport and had been looking forward to their arrival from Portugal.

The girls' mother was also travelling in the car but was not seriously injured.
