CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- A 3-year-old boy critically injured in a hit-and-run accident that killed a 19-year-old woman earlier this month has died. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police issued a statement Monday saying the unidentified boy died at Carolinas Medical Center with his family at his side. 

Three other passengers in the car, among them an 18-month-old girl and a 22-month-old girl, are expected to recover. 

Police charged 18-year-old Uriel Eduardo Flores with involuntary manslaughter and felony hit and run. 

A statement from police said a car struck a utility pole on the city's south side last Wednesday. Emergency personnel pronounced the driver, Shaquise Bush, dead at the scene.
