BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A driver who Baltimore City Police say is responsible for a deadly car crash in West Baltimore could face multiple charges after hitting a car so hard it went airborne, killing the driver.

Rochelle Ritchie sat down with the victim’s family and spoke with witnesses who say speed played a factor.

The State’s Attorney’s Office is currently looking into what charges the driver who caused this accident could face. The victim, his child and his child’s mother were all in the car when they were violently hit.

Tevin Hall, a 26-year-old father, was tragically killed after his gold Marquis was hit at such a high rate of speed, his car flipped and shredded into pieces in mid-air.

“Saw the car flip like, two or three times. Then it just landed, like, boom,” said Moses Rush.

Hall, his daughter and her mother were inside the car.

“She’s listed as critical condition,” said an officer.

Baltimore City police say the driver of a green Acura is responsible for the crash and are looking into all possible factors, including speed.

The speed limit on Fulton Avenue is 35 miles per hour but people who witnessed the crash say the Acura was going at least 80 miles an hour.

“Why are you traveling like this through city streets? It’s not like it’s a highway,” said Pauline Ward, Hall’s grandmother.

Hall’s heartbroken family says he was a good father with a light spirit and they want one thing.

“Justice,” said Tannya Hall, his aunt. “Justice.”

Eyewitnesses say they frantically came together to rescue Hall’s 2-year-old daughter, who was trapped inside the mangled car.

“Somebody jumped on the hood of the car, tried to get the door open,” said Rush. “Somebody went and got a pipe wrench and tapped the window. That’s when I reached in–you can see the blood on my jacket–I reached in and grabbed the baby.”

The family says the mother and daughter are still fighting for their lives.

“Mom is still being sedated and the daughter, they say they were having problems with her right side,” said Ward.

Neither the driver of the green Acura nor his passenger were injured in the crash.

Hall’s family says he had just bought the gold Marquis the day before his death.

A total of four vehicles were involved in the crash. Several other people were injured but not seriously.
