Baltimore police are searching for a man wanted after a crash during a police pursuit killed a 1-year-old boy.
Police announced on Nov. 4 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 Nov. 1. City police said 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 on Nov. 2.
Baltimore County police said the tragic sequence began when a man was fatally struck by a vehicle while trying to cross Pulaski Highway before 7 p.m. Police closed the road for an investigation and about two hours later, police said a Mercedes-Benz hit a police cruiser helping with the road closure, then fled.
Another officer pursued the Mercedes into Baltimore city, where police say it rearended a Volvo on Moravia Road, then hit a pole. The impact pushed the Volvo up onto the sidewalk, where a woman was waiting at a bus stop with Jeremiah Perry in a stroller. The boy was hit and was critically injured. He later died at a hospital, police said.
The officer whose cruiser was hit, the driver of the Volvo and the boy’s mother were not injured, police said.
