    AZ - Katie Fujimoto, 6 wks, killed in street race crash, Phoenix, 13 Sept 2008




    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,423422,00.html

    A newborn baby girl died after she was thrown from her car seat during an apparent street race that ended in a crash in Phoenix, police said.

    The 6-week-old infant died Monday night, according to MyFOXPhoenix.com.

    The 24-year-old unidentified driver of the Ford Mustang that was carrying the child was listed in critical condition.

    Police believe the man behind the wheel was racing another vehicle with the baby girl strapped in her car seat in the back when he lost control and crashed into a utility pole in the western part of the city.

    The alleged joy ride ended in tragedy: The child was ejected from the Mustang and died from her injuries.

    There was no immediate word as to whether charges would be filed.

    OMG how sad. Was the seat not installed correctly or was she not fastened in? I can not even imagine doing something so stupid with a child in the car, much less an infant or newborn!

    I don't even know what to say. Sad. Incredibly sad, she never had a chance.

    yeesh.
    i read this last week.
    what's really sad, besides the horror of a childs death, is this person is not a blood relative, just a 'friend'.
    grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    This person is just a friend! Why (and not blaming mom for the baby dying) would the mother let an irresponsible person drive her baby girl around. When my daughter was a baby and even toddler and older, I was extremely hesitant about her being in the car with people unless I knew them and knew that they had my daughter's safety first. Very sad all the way around!

    The driver of the vehicle's name is Chance Reed. The baby's name is Katie.

    Katie's great-aunt is mega PO'd and said the child's mom knew that Reed had a bad driving record.

    This is so, so awful.

    can we just drag this 24 yr old's butt out to a car and do this to him as well? that's the least we can do for this child

    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    Myspace

    Chance Reed's Myspace. Be warned that the little baby girl has a Myspace and what appears to be her mom is top on his list.

    Myspace

    Beautiful baby Katie Ann's Myspace. It's private, but what a gorgeous lil baby. Her mom is actually on her own Myspace right now.

    Mom's myspace

    Katie Ann Fujimotto's mom is so mad at her family. Her Myspace is private but she's got it written right out there "F*ck her family and Katie Ann didn't need a family like that. Don't worry mommy will love you forever".

    Looking at Reed's Myspace I'd say they are more than casual friends. That's so dang sad. All he way around.
