Month old killed, three other children injured in Detroit hit-and-run

Police are looking for a driver involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 6-month-old boy and left three children and two adults hospitalized in Detroit.

Officers say three children inside a blue 2001 Chrysler Town and Country minivan were ejected in the crash.

The van was hit so hard it flipped and rolled over. The baby was ejected along with two others. The youngest child was pronounced dead at the scene.

In addition to the 6-month-old, a 12-year-old boy, a 2-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl were all in the van, as were their 40-year-old mother and 59-year-old grandmother.

Police are asking for people to be on the lookout for a silver Pontiac Grand Prix with severe front-end damage. A description was not yet available as investigators worked to determine the cause of crash.

The vehicle is believed to have heavy front-end damage.

A 2005 Ford Taurus had been traveling above 100 miles per hour near Lyndon and Turner when it lost control and hit a tree, Moreno said. “The mom was picking one up and she was hysterical. someone from down the street, one of our neighbors, rushed them to the hospital”, said a neighbor who did not want to be named in this story.
