On Wednesday, May 2, 2018, a terrible accident occurred. A little 3yr old boy was hit by a man in a van. After running over the child, the man got out of the van, saw the child and began to freak out as neighbors poured out into the street. The man then got into his van and took off. According to 6ABC, the child was in critical but stable condition after this accident.

If you have any information about this person please contact police right away by dialing 911. You can also submit a tip anonymously online here or call 215-686-TIPS (8477). A video of the Chrysler minivan and the driver is available via 6ABC.

Our hearts go out to this little boy and his family. This is something no child should ever have to experience.
