Toddler hurt in Bayshore Blvd. crash dies from her injuries

- The 21-month-old toddler who was injured when she and her mother were hit by a car while walking across Bayshore Boulevard has died from her injuries, according to the Tampa Police Department.

Lillia Raubenolt was in a stroller being pushed by her mother, 24-year-old Jessica Raubenolt (previously identified as Jessica Reisinger), who died shortly after being hit Wednesday.

Police say the mother and child were hit by a car engaged in street racing with another car. 

Three people, the two drivers and a passenger, have been arrested and charged in the incident. They have since bonded out of jail.
