Police say a diabetic seizure may have been behind the accident that killed a baby and seriously injured it's mother at a Metro Bus Stop in Northwoods Monday morning.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that the driver of the car, 41 year old Larry Jones, may have blacked out just before crashing his car in the 6900 block of Natural Bridge. Witnesses say his car suddenly veered across the street, hit a light post and then crashed into a MetroBus.
Thirty-nine-year old Erica Hughes and her infant daughter, Alyja Hughes had been waiting for the bus. Both were struck. Baby Alyja was thrown some 50 feet from the impact.
Bystanders, including an off duty firefighter administred CPR. The infant was rushed to St. Louis Childrens Hospital, but died anyway.
Both Jones and Hughes are hospitalized in serious condition.
