There's still no arrest in a weekend accident in Tulsa that killed a child, just weeks from being born.

Tulsa Police say a gray Thunderbird pulled into an east Tulsa intersection near 27th and 129th East Avenue, and was broadsided by a white SUV.

Rescue workers used the Jaws of Life to pull a pregnant passenger from the Thunderbird. Her baby died at the hospital. Police say the driver of the Thunderbird was injured and bleeding. But he ran off before officers arrived. The driver of the SUV was not seriously hurt.

Police are searching for the driver of the Thunderbird. He's described as a heavy-set Hispanic male, wearing a tan t-shirt and blue jeans. He faces felony charges for leaving the scene of an injury accident.
