Boy, 4, fatally struck after father’s funeral


CHESTER, Pa. (AP) – A 4-year-old Pennsylvania boy is dead after being hit by a car after his father’s funeral.

Police in Chester say Carder Brown had just got out of a car when he was hit by a van Saturday evening. Investigators say the boy jumped from the backseat after seeing his mother standing outside.

The little boy was rushed to a hospital and died.

Family and police say funeral services for Carder’s father had been held a few hours earlier. Derrick Brown was shot and killed last week.

Police say the driver of the van stopped at the scene. The investigation is continuing.
