Death of baby after N.Y. crash intensifies anguish

Delivered after parents killed in hit-and-run

Police hunted for the suspected driver, identified as Julio Acevedo, saying he was barreling down a residential street in a BMW at 60 miles per hour, or twice the speed limit, on Sunday morning when he collided with a car hired to take the couple to the hospital.
