VALDOSTA, Ga. — Authorities say a 3-month-old baby has died after an SUV crashed into a Valdosta home.

WALB-TV reports the baby was killed Sunday morning when a Chevrolet Equinox ran a stop sign and drove into the home.

Officials say the baby, Corey Dixon, was dead when paramedics arrived. A 21-month-old child was injured and transported to Macon Hospital. The children were sleeping in the living room of the house with their mother, Varmel Stewart. She was released from the hospital and the second child was stable.

The driver, 23-year-old Willis Clifford Dotson II, has been charged with vehicular homicide and several other offenses. He was being held in the Lowndes County Jail.

How aweful! Our prayers are

How aweful! Our prayers are with this family! I can only assume that the driver was under the influence to drive into a home. The driver now bears the weight of his actions and the consequences that go with it.

according to the WALB

according to the WALB website, no dwi... "The driver, 23-year-old Willis Clifford Dotson II, is charged with vehicular homicide, running a stop sign, reckless driving, and injury to a person by vehicle. He's being held in the Lowndes County Jail."
He also had a passenger who was taken to a Tallahasse hospital.

unless they suspect some sort

unless they suspect some sort of impairment, they won't even take blood to check for drugs. sounds like lack of attention killed a baby, and he'll have to live with that for the rest of HIS life.
