6-month-old killed, 3 others injured when stolen car crashes into pickup in Chicago's West Garfield Park

A horrific crash involving a stolen car in Chicago's West Garfield Park on Sunday afternoon killed a baby boy and left his mother and two other children hospitalized.

Shawn Walker’s surveillance cameras caught the entire ordeal. A Ford pickup truck was seen driving northbound on Kostner before it was struck by a stolen Hyundai Sonata. The Sonata came to rest at a light pole, the truck went head on into a large tree.

In the back seat of the truck was a 6-month-old boy. 

"The baby wasn't breathing, so we started doing CPR," said Walker. "My main thing was so we could get a pulse back into the baby."


The Cook County Medical Examiner identified the baby as Cristian Uvidia. He was pronounced dead on Monday afternoon at Stroger Hospital.
