A hit-and-run crash in Little Havana seriously injured a 22-day-old baby.
Miami police say a white Ford Econoline van rumbling west on Southwest Seventh Street ran a red light at Southwest 17th Avenue at 1:16 a.m. Saturday. The van crashed into another vehicle, ejecting the newborn and injuring the baby’s mother before continuing on its way.
Baby and mother were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, where the child is in critical condition and the mother is stable.
The van, possibly a 2004-07 model, should have significant front-end damage.
