Two teenagers have been arrested after their alleged joyride ended in the death of an innocent six-month-old boy. The pair have been charged with misdemeanour trespassing, which typically carries a prison sentence of only six months and a $1,500 (£1,200) fine. Police claim those charges could be upgraded.
The drivers, aged 14 and 17, allegedly blew through an intersection and collided with a pickup truck with three children and an woman inside.
Six-month-old Cristian Uvidia died as a result of his injuries while three others, aged 34, 17 and seven, were injured and treated at the hospital.
The crash was caught on video by local Shaun Walker. He told Fox 32: “The baby wasn’t breathing, so we started doing CPR. My main thing was so we could get a pulse back into the baby.”
But the child succumbed to his injuries three days later. A GoFundMe page has since been set up for the family’s hospital bills and funeral expenses. It has raised almost £30,000 ($37,000).
