Another neighbor who wished not to show his face said he held the 4-year-old child while waiting for first responders to arrive.

"The lady in the passenger seat handed me the baby through the window," the neighbor said. "I had the baby in one arm and the cellphone in the other."

The accident reconstruction team was at the scene, working to piece together the circumstances that led to such a devastating end.

"It's not normal for us to have crashes that are this severe in a residential neighborhood," said Sgt. Joel Kuszynski of the Sheboygan Police Department.
