October 13, 1995|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

A 2-year-old girl's foot was severed yesterday when a stolen car allegedly driven by her teen-age brother crashed in Northeast Baltimore as the driver tried to elude officers, police said.

The Parkville girl was taken to Johns Hopkins Children's Center, where she was listed in fair condition last night. A spokeswoman would not say if doctors could reattach the foot.

Police said an officer saw the stolen 1991 Honda about 12:15 p.m. at Hillen and Harford roads and got out of his patrol vehicle. The driver sped off, jumped a median strip and headed south on northbound Hillen.

Police said the route included several side streets before the Honda hit a parked car and overturned at The Alameda and Argonne Drive. The driver, who ran from the car carrying the girl, was caught a few blocks away and police saw that the girl's right foot was missing. Police found the foot near the car.

The youth, 16, was charged as a juvenile with auto theft, police said. The car had been stolen Oct. 6 in Baltimore County.
