Baby Boy Hit, Killed By Car On Southeast Side
INDIANAPOLIS -- A 5-month-old child has died after being hit by a car driven by her father Monday afternoon.
Police said the baby was sitting in a car seat in a driveway. The child’s mother stepped inside and at that point, the father pulled into the driveway. The father did not see the baby and hit the infant with his car. They immediately called for help.
The Marion Co. Coroner identified the child as Jeffrey Rogers III.
The parents are cooperating with investigators.
Police were sent to investigate just before 5 p.m. in the 1700 block of Dawson Street. That’s on the near-southeast side near East Minnesota Street and South State Avenue.
EMS took the child to Riley Hospital, where he died.
