JENNINGS, MO – A toddler was killed and a woman was injured in a hit-and-run collision near an intersection in Jennings on Saturday night, the Riverbender reports.

St. Louis County Police were called to the 5500 block of Jennings Station Road at 10:08 p.m. on May 29 after receiving reports of a pedestrian collision there. A young boy, aged about 2, was pronounced dead at the scene, while a woman in her mid-20s was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition. She was carrying a baby in a car seat, who appears to have been uninjured.
