Pedestrian accidents are far too common in St. Louis. There is a much higher risk involved when a pedestrian is hit by a car or truck, and the accident is more likely to have fatal consequences. That is exactly what happened in St. Louis County following a recent hit-and-run.

Four-Year-Old Dies in Hit-and-Run

A mother was pushing her two-year-old in a stroller and her four-year-old was walking beside them when the accident took place. The man who was driving the car had several legal problems. His license had been revoked and he also had a DUI, among other issues. Police reported that he left the scene of the accident.

Unfortunately, the older child passed away at the hospital. The younger child sustained leg fractures, but doctors believe he will recover. The man was handed several charges, including one count of second-degree murder.
