ABC 7 reports a 29-year-old woman and her 1-year-old son were killed early Monday in a two-vehicle crash in south suburban Beecher, police said.
The victims were identified as Lindsey Schmidt and her 1-year-old son, Kaleb Schmidt.
Lindsey Schmidt's two other sons, age 4 and 7, were also in the vehicle and in critical condition Monday afternoon at University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital. Their father is at the hospital with them.
The family was only one block from their Beecher home. Police initially said the deceased boy was 3, but he was around 21-months old, the coroner. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
The coroner said Kaleb would have turned 2 in October.
