In the aftermath of an accident that killed a 6-month-old child, two Chicago teenagers have been charged with one misdemeanor count each.

Police said it is possible the charges could be upgraded after further investigation.

Cristian Uvidia, who was 6 months old, was killed.

Family members said Cristian’s two older sisters and mother were still hospitalized days after the crash, but are expected to recover.

The New York Post reported that two other teens were in the car.

Should more charges be brought against the suspects?

Writing on a GoFundMe page for the family, Annelisse Rivera said that on the day of the crash, “my family was heading out of their home on their way to meet with their friends.”

“They were waiting at an intersection in their Ford F150, when they were struck by 4 teenagers in a stolen car,” she wrote.

“In that moment, our lives were alternated forever. Our sweet boy Cristian, or as we call him at home ‘Cristiansito’, life was cut short at just 6 months,” she wrote.

She said the infant suffered a fractured skull in the crash.

“We are devastated, and we are broken. We will miss his sweet smile, as he was a joy to everyone that he met,” she wrote.

“We are a family of believers in Jesus, and we know that we will see our sweet boy again one day. Until that day comes, we will cherish the short time we had with him forever. Earth lost a beautiful baby boy, but heaven gained its most beautiful angel,” she wrote.
