EVANSVILLE, Indiana — Authorities say a toddler and her baby brother are dead, after a police chase ended when the suspect’s car crashed into another vehicle.
Police officers were chasing a car driven by 26-year-old Fredrick McFarland when his car entered an intersection and plowed into a second vehicle Wednesday night in the southwestern Indiana city.
Several people were hospitalized and Vanderburgh County’s coroner confirmed Wednesday night that one crash victim had died. Evansville police said early Thursday that a second person had died.

The coroner identified the victims as 7-month-old Prince Carter and 2-year-old Princess Carter.
Their parents are still in the hospital, fighting for their lives.
Police say McFarland also remains hospitalized with injuries resulting from the crash. He faces a preliminary felony charge of fleeing from police. More charges are expected to be added.
Officers tried to stop the McFarland because his car had false plates.
A GoFundMe has raised $2,000 thus far.
