It’s a sad day when children are killed, but especially when their killer appears to be so callous according to a story in the NYDailyNews.
A brave 11-year-old boy died after he pushed his little sister out of the way of an out-of-control car as the two siblings were waiting for their school bus, his family said Wednesday.
Little La’Darious Wylie sacrificed his short life last week, shoving his 7-year-old sister, Sha’Vonta, to safety as a hit-and-run driver barreled into his tiny body at a South Carolina bus stop, the children’s mother told The Herald.
“He knew to look out for her,” devastated mom Elizabeth McCrorey said.
The fifth grader was struck on the corner of his family’s home last Tuesday morning and died from his injuries the next day.
The children were reportedly waiting for the school bus when a woman named Michelle Johnson recklessly sped toward them then immediately fled the scene without even attempting to check on either of the children or calling an ambulance.
Johnson was arrested Thursday and charged with hit and run resulting in death, according to The Herald. She was released on a $25,000 bond and has no criminal record.
La’Darious’s organs were also donated to save another child, his family said.The little boy who was a good student and loved playing football “had his whole life ahead of him,” loved ones wrote in a GoFundMe page started to help the family pay for funeral costs.
