NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Essex County prosecutors say a Newark toddler struck by a car that was rammed by a stolen vehicle fleeing police has died from her injuries.

Fourteen-month-old Zoe Jackson sustained head trauma in Thursday night’s accident and died Saturday afternoon at University Hospital.

Prosecutors say police had been pursuing a Jeep occupied by two juveniles wanted for a robbery and shooting earlier that day. But the pursuit was soon ended for safety reasons.

A short time later, the Jeep was speeding the wrong way down a street when it hit a Cadillac. The Cadillac then hit Jackson, her 40-year-old aunt and the woman’s 10-year-old son, who were all in a crosswalk. Those two and the Cadillac’s driver were not seriously injured.

The two juveniles, ages 16 and 17, face numerous charges.
