Eleven-Year-Old Boy Dies After Hit and Run in St. Louis
Hit and run accidents happen for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes the drivers don’t want to be bothered with stopping to assess the accident and talk with police. There are times when drivers have pending legal charges, or they may not have car insurance, and so they panic and flee the scene. Regardless of the reason, hit and run accidents should never occur; and this case of an eleven-year-old boy passing away after a hit and run is no exception.
According to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, this incident occurred around 6:30 in the evening. The boy was attempting to cross the street when he was hit by an oncoming car. Instead of coming to his aid, other motorists drove around him, and one driver almost drove over him, as if he wasn’t there. At the time of the article, the police did not have a vehicle description, or any other clues as to who the driver of the vehicle was. Unfortunately, the boy died later at the hospital.
