While any car crash that results in a fatality is tragic, the tragedy is only compounded when it is the holiday season and a child is among the deceased. One New York family is now mourning the loss of a two-year-old child who died when the car he was in was involved in a head-on collision. The fatal accident was caused by a car that was attempting to flee from the police. The driver of that vehicle also died.
Police report that the accident occurred around 10 p.m. on Dec. 13 after an officer attempted to pull over a Toyota Camry that matched the description of a car involved in an alleged shoplifting. When the police cruiser's lights came on, the Camry fled. Because of the road conditions, the officer did not pursue the vehicle.
