A 9-year-old from St. Louis died after being struck during a police chase
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A 9-year-old St. Louis County boy injured when the car he was in was struck during a police chase last month has died.
Police on Friday announced the death of Caleb Lee. Caleb, his 5-year-old brother, mother and aunt had just returned from Disney World on April 25 when an SUV fleeing police struck their car. Both women and Caleb's brother were also hurt but survived.
The chase began when a Normandy, Missouri, officer saw an SUV commit a moving violation on Interstate 70 and realized it matched the description of an SUV taken during an armed robbery.
The SUV exited near the airport and struck the car.
