Woman and boy die after I-10 bridge hit-and-run
NEW ORLEANS - A 2-year-old has now died after being struck in a hit-and-run accident on Interstate 10.
The Orleans Parish Coroner says Kaedan Boyd died Sunday in a hospital. His aunt, 29-year-old Danielle Rhone, died earlier at the scene of the accident.
New Orleans police say the two were passengers who got out of a Chevrolet Impala. It broke down on the high-rise bridge over the Industrial Canal about 1:10 a.m. Sunday.
A chain-reaction wreck ensued after the breakdown. Rhone and Boyd were struck and thrown over the bridge's railing.
Police say they believe some of the vehicles involved fled the scene, and are looking for a white Chevrolet Suburban with damage to the passenger side.
Blood and alcohol tests are pending, as are autopsies.
Police say no citations have been issued.
