Detroit Six Year Old Boy is a Victim of an Accident Where the Driver did not Stop
Michigan Car accident attorney is reporting that a six year old boy from Detroit is in critical condition after being hit by a car early Wednesday morning. The driver never stopped after hitting the boy. The accident occurred near East Warren Avenue and St. Clair Streets on Detroit’s east side. The driver that hit the boy took off after hitting him. Reports say she never even slowed down.
Deshawn White was just trying to get to his bus stop when a woman driving a grey or silver, compact vehicle hit him while he was crossing the street. The victim’s brother is reported as saying that the driver never slowed down or even blew her horn.
After being hit by the vehicle, Deshawn’s little body flew in the air and landed on the ground. He was rushed to Children’s Hospital, where he was taken for emergency surgery to save his life. Tonight he is listed in critical condition and the doctors are worried whether or not he will survive.
It is believed that she knew she hit the boy. When she fled the scene she took off heading westbound in the eastbound lanes of East Warren at a high rate of speed. She then turned to go southbound on Bewick Street.
