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.
The infant was believed to have been riding in a child safety seat found inside the car.
The child’s mother and father were hospitalized in good condition along with a teenager and a 3-year-old also riding in the car’s back seat.
Police are looking for two men who fled from their car after it rear-ended the family’s vehicle.
Witnesses told police that car was traveling recklessly and at a high rate of speed at the time of the crash.
