A toddler has died after an apparent street racer slammed into oncoming traffic in Des Moines last night.

Witnesses tell Des Moines police a sedan and an SUV were involved in an extended street race on Fleur Drive about 6 PM.

At Gray’s Lake Park, police say the sedan crossed the median and hit two approaching vehicles.

Four people were rushed to hospitals, including a four-year-old who has died, and the 35-year-old Urbandale man who police say was driving the sedan.

The other alleged racer, a dark-colored SUV, continued on after the crash and police are asking for the public’s help in finding it, though no further description is being released.
