Unrestrained 1-year-old dies after being ejected from vehicle on north I-10


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPRPOUD) — An unrestrained 1-year-old died Sunday in a crash on north I-10 in Baton Rouge after being ejected from a vehicle.

The crash occurred just after 9 p.m. when an unknown vehicle struck the side-rear of a Chevy Impala, causing the Impala to lose control and hit a concrete barrier on the side of the road, according to Baton Rouge Police Department spokesperson Sgt. L’Jean Mckneely Jr.

The Impala then flipped over, and 1-year-old Ruben Scott Jr., who was not properly restrained, was ejected from the vehicle.

An additional passenger in the Impala suffered non-life threatening injuries. The driver and two other passengers were uninjured.

A Pontiac was also involved in the crash, and its driver was uninjured.
