ORLANDO, Fla. (WWSB) - Authorities say a 4-month-old boy has died, days after the car he was riding in was involved in a crash on Florida’s Turnpike.

Their car slowed down because of traffic and another vehicle struck it. When troopers arrived at the crash scene, they immediately began CPR on the boy. Paramedics took him to the hospital, where he later died.
