The driver linked to a crash that killed a 4-month-old girl in a Huntington Beach crosswalk now faces vehicular manslaughter charges.

Robert Casares could get up to a year in jail for the misdemeanor. Prosecutors say he had glanced down to secure a laptop case in the car and didn't notice traffic had stopped.

They say he hit a pickup truck, which then hit an Australian family in the crosswalk. The impact killed the baby girl in the stroller. Two others were hurt.
