A 15-year old was killed Saturday night in an apparent street racing hit and run accident. The boy was jogging around 9:15pm on Kipling at West Asbury Avenue and was struck by a PT Cruiser while crossing the street, neither car stopped. The victim was taken to St. Anthony’s Central Hospital with serious injuries but was pronounced dead a short time later. There have been no arrests in the case but police have located the driver of the PT Cruiser through a tip from a relative. Almost 40,000 people were killed last year in the United States from auto-pedestrian accidents. Most are avoidable especially in the cases of street racing and even more tragic when a young persons life is taken due to the negligence of someone else.
