3 killed, including toddler, in Colo. hit-and-run

AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- Three people were killed, including a toddler, after an SUV crashed into a pickup and shoved it into an ice cream shop outside Denver, Colo.

Witnesses say the SUV broadsided the truck Thursday night as the smaller vehicle was turning left.

Aurora police say debris injured a 2-year-old boy inside the ice cream shop. He died at a hospital. Two women in the pickup were also killed.

Police say the driver ran away, but a 23-year-old suspect was arrested a short time later.
