ST. LOUIS — A father whose car went into a river has died from the crash that already had claimed the life of his 7-month-old son.
A spokeswoman for Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis says 24-year-old Kevin Payne died Saturday night.
The vehicle went into the River Des Peres on Wednesday afternoon.
Rescuers were able to get Payne out but didn't know a baby was also strapped in a car seat. The infant was later pulled from the submerged vehicle but was dead.
The child was 7-month-old Trenton Payne.
Investigators are trying to determine what happened.
