BALTIMORE (AP) - The mother of a baby killed during a police chase in northeast Baltimore is suing Baltimore County Police.

Media outlets report that on Nov. 1, 2015, Teaira Smallwood was waiting for a bus with her daughter and infant son.

Meanwhile, authorities say county police were chasing 38-year-old Wayne Green after he crashed into an empty police cruiser and fled. Green crashed into a Volvo, pushing it onto the curb where Smallwood and her children were standing. Smallwood’s 1-year-old son, Jeremiah Perry, was crushed and killed.

Green pleaded guilty to manslaughter and other charges in August and was sentenced to 11 years.

Smallwood is suing a police officer and the Volvo driver.

Baltimore County Police have declined to comment.
