The driver chucked the eight-month-old (presumably in order to lighten the load – not particularly sound physics, but you can see the logic). The child was unhurt, because apparently babies are super-resiliant to being dropped at speed onto tarmac (something about bendy bones). The driver, however, was later killed in a crash. Now that’s what I call ironic.
