4-year-old still in critical condition Sunday, no arrests made

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

A 4-year-old boy who was hit by a motorcycle Saturday afternoon is still in critical condition at Gillette Children's Hospital Sunday. 

Tyrell Baymon's family said on Sunday that the little boy has yet to wake up since being struck while on his way to his birthday party in St. Paul. He has a skull fracture and will have an MRI on Sunday afternoon, according to the family.

Baymon's mother said they were outside the family's SUV on LaFond Avenue when her 4-year-old son was hit.  He was holding his mother's hand at the time of the crash.

Baymon and his family were on their way to nearby Como Park to celebrate the boy's birthday.

Witnesses said the motorcyclist was driving aggressively on Lafond Avenue before striking Baymon. The driver did not stop, St. Paul Police said.

"It seems like he speeded up, and I was like, ‘Oh my God.' And then he just came and hit -- hit the baby," said Andre Scroggins, Baymon's uncle. "Tyrell, he went flying and he went like 20 feet and then he was under the van. We were trying to grab him and he was unconscious."

According to police, the little boy was thrown six or seven feet into the air after being hit by the royal-blue sport motorcycle. Baymon then landed on the asphalt.

"This is a situation that I think really hits everybody just super close to home and to the heart no matter geography, anything. This is a little boy who, it's my understanding talking to folks, he wasn't playing in the street, he was in the street holding his mom's hand getting ready to celebrate his forth birthday," said Howie Padilla, St. Paul Police public information officer.

Police are asking for the public's help in locating the driver of the sports bike. Neighbors say they regularly see the motorcycle driving in the neighborhood. The sports motorcycle is royal-blue in color and likely has fresh frontal damage. Police believe the driver is a male in his 20s.

St. Paul Police are looking into leads, but they have yet to make an arrest, Padilla said Sunday.

The St. Paul Police Department urges anyone with information about the crash to contact their non-emergency line at 651-291-1111.
