St. Louis (KMOX) One year old Marshawn Billips was riding in the back seat of his mother’s car when she lost control of the vehicle and struck a pole Friday afternoon in the 37-hundred block of Bond Avenue in Alorton.

An older model flat screen TV was also in the back seat. The crash caused the TV to fall on the boy-causing head and body injuries.

Marshawn was airlifted to Children’s Hospital where he died of his injuries a few hours later.

The mother-Vernita Billips and another child-her 5 year old daughter-sustained minor injuries.
