18-year-old driver fled hit-and-run that killed toddler, Delaware police say

A 3-year-old boy was killed when police say he was struck by a hit-and-run driver while running across a busy street in Delaware. 

Delaware State Police say a white pickup truck struck and killed the young boy as he ran across South State Street in Camden Tuesday evening.

The driver then fled the scene, leaving the 3-year-old, identified as Kasai Bull, with fatal injuries, according to authorities.

"We had two troopers perform CPR on the little one and he was taken to a hospital and sadly he was pronounced dead," Seinor Corporal Leonard DeMalto said. 


Police say they have contacted the 18-year-old driver, but no charged have been announced at this time.

"The family is pretty well shaken up," said Dan Barajas, a clerk at the Valero gas station who knew the family. "Nobody thinks about losing a loved one like that, so it's very sad for the family."

"Keep an eye on your kids, you know, your loved ones, you don't want nothing to happen to them," Barajas said.
