INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis police say a 7-month-old boy who was ejected from his parents’ car during a hit-and-run crash has died from his injuries.

Police said the infant was thrown from the car’s back seat when the family’s car was rear-ended Tuesday night by another car. The child died Wednesday at Eskenazi Hospital.
