Man Faces Vehicular Homicide Charge in Toddler's Death

A toddler who was injured in a car accident last Friday passed away at the hospital Wednesday night. Police say Laronnie Taylor ran a stop sign at 58th and Cuba Streets, slamming into the car where 1-year-old Juelz Morgan was a passenger. (See: Mother and Child Seriously Injured in Wreck.)

The child was not properly restrained in the car and was thrown to the floorboard upon impact.

Taylor is being held without bond on charges including leaving the scene of an accident. He faces a new charge of first degree vehicular homicide.
