Police: Driver Flees Police, Leads to Crash That Kills Child

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP)- A 1-year-old boy is dead after a crash at a bus stop involving a car fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run Sunday night, authorities said.
    
Baltimore County police said the tragic sequence began when a man was fatally struck by a vehicle while trying to cross Pulaski Highway before 7 p.m. Police closed the road for an investigation and about two hours later, police said a Mercedes-Benz hit a police cruiser helping with the road closure, then fled.
    
Another officer pursued the Mercedes into Baltimore city, where police say it rear-ended a Volvo on Moravia Road, then hit a pole. The impact pushed the Volvo up onto the sidewalk, where a woman was waiting at a bus stop with her 1-year-old son in a stroller. The boy was hit and was critically injured. He later died at a hospital, police said.
    
The officer whose cruiser was hit, the driver of the Volvo and the boy's mother were not injured, police said. The driver of the Mercedes was taken to an area hospital, but police said he is expected to survive.
    
County police are still investigating the pedestrian crash on Pulaski Highway and hit-and-run crash involving the police cruiser. Charges against the driver of the Mercedes are pending the conclusion of all related investigations, county police said.
    
City police will investigate the crash on Moravia Road. County police spokeswoman Officer Jen Peach said the department will investigate whether its pursuit policy was followed.
