SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Police in Syracuse have released the identity of a man wanted in the hit-and-run collision that killed a 2-year-old girl and injured her baby brother and her father.

Eighteen-year-old Felix Santos is wanted on manslaughter and numerous other charges. Police didn’t say Wednesday how they had connected Santos to the hit-and-run or where he might be located.

Police say Jameisha Stanford was playing on a sidewalk last month when a car jumped the curb and hit her and her younger brother and their father. Jameisha was killed. Her 1-year-old brother and her father were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Any persons with information about Santos’ whereabouts are asked to contact Syracuse police immediately.
