A fundraiser has been launched to help the family of a two-week-old baby who got killed when his pram was hit by a car. It has raised more than £26,000 (around $35942) till now.

The baby, Ciaran Leigh Morris, was taken to the Brownhills High Street on Easter Sunday by his parents when a BMW struck the pram and pinned it against a wall after colliding with another vehicle.

To support the family, a JustGiving page has been created. Karl Roberts set up the page saying: "On the 4th of April, a traffic collision occurred on Brownhills high street that resulted in the loss of life of a two week old baby. We are trying to raise funds to support the family at this very difficult time."

Its initial target of £2,000 (around $2764)was surpassed on Monday afternoon. It has now reached £26,338 (around $36409).

People have posted emotional messages as well. One donor said, "As a mother this has made me feel sick. What those poor poor parents must be feeling is just indescribable. Fly high beautiful boy. The angels will keep you safe now."

As for the suspect, a 34-year-old man charged with causing Ciaran's death appeared in Wolverhampton Magistrates Court Tuesday, reported Shropshire Star. James Paul Davis from Walsall has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, causing death by driving while uninsured, leaving the scene of a collision and failing to report a collision.

In another incident, a one-year-old child died after being struck by a relative’s vehicle as a Central Texas family gathered to mourn the death of a loved one.

At around 10 p.m. on March 30, a Teague Police Department officer was approached in the parking lot of the Brookshire Brother’s at 220 Loop 255 and handed an unresponsive child, reported KWTX.

Emergency personnel were called to the scene to provide medical care for the child, police said. The child was taken to the Freestone Medical Center where the toddler was pronounced dead.

An investigator found that the child had been hit by a vehicle driven by the kid’s aunt.

The woman told officers she was “slowly driving her vehicle away” from a family gathering. She said she did not see the child as she was leaving. She stopped only after a person at the gathering started yelling at her to stop.

Police said no criminal charges are expected to be filed. The identities of the child and the woman involved in the incident have not been released.
