BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police are searching for a man wanted after a crash during a police pursuit killed a 1-year-old boy.
Police announced Wednesday that 38-year-old Wayne Anthony Green is wanted for negligent manslaughter, attempting to evade a police officer, and driving with a revoked license.
Baltimore County police say they pursued a car that hit a cruiser at a crash scene into the city Sunday night. City police say the fleeing Mercedes-Benz plowed into a Volvo, sending it into a bus stop where 1-year-old Jeremiah Perry's mother was waiting with the boy in a stroller.
The car struck the child, who died of his injuries. Police say Green was taken to a hospital and released. Police say they have not been able to find Green since prosecutors brought charges Monday.
This is not Green's first brush with the law, nor is it the first time Green has killed someone while behind the wheel of a car, court records show. In 2002, Green pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide in Baltimore County and was sentenced to three years in jail, according to State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger.
