Police continued to search Monday for the driver of a sedan that was involved in a wreck in southeast Fort Worth on Saturday evening in which a 4-month-old boy was fatally injured.

Ivan Ramirez of Fort Worth was pronounced dead at 9:07 p.m. Sunday at Cook Children’s Medical Center, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.

Ivan was in a 2003 Suburban that was southbound in the 4700 block of Wichita Street about 6 p.m. Saturday when it started to turn east onto Martin Street, police reported. It was struck on the passenger side by a white 2000 four-door Pontiac.

In a news release Monday, police said the occupants of the Pontiac fled the scene. Two were later found at John Peter Smith Hospital, where they were interviewed by police.

An initial police report on the wreck indicated that the Pontiac was owned by a 23-year-old man who was listed as a passenger in the car. The report does not indicate whether the owner knew who was driving the Pontiac. When asked for clarification, Cpl. Tracey Knight, a police spokeswoman, said the driver of the car “is unknown at this time.”

The Pontiac was impounded, according to the initial police report.

In the collision, the baby was ejected from the Suburban, according to a news release. Knight said that “child restraint is undetermined at this time.”

Staff writers Terry Evans and Deanna Boyd contributed to this report.
