Eight-Year-Old Jump Rope Champion Struck And Killed In New Jersey

01 Novembre 2017

An 8-year-old jump rope champion who appeared on The Tonight Show was killed on Saturday after he was struck by a Jeep as he walked home from a fundraiser. Jeremiah was rushed to Jersey City Medical Center and pronounced dead shortly after 5 p.m.

'I jumped on the street, went after the vehicle.

Witnesses told police the driver did not initially stop after hitting Jeremiah, but eventually came to a halt when a group of good Samaritans confronted him half a block away. "He said he felt like he went over a bookbag", he said. Grant was a member of the Honey Bees. He didn't notice that he had hit a person'.

Meanwhile, he dismissed talk some of his former New Zealand teammates were "scared" to face him as a "little bit of nonsense". He's fit, and in the final he looked quite sharp, and that's everything we wanted him to do.

Police say the Jeep's 60-year-old driver drove off until witnesses flagged him down. He stayed at the scene until authorities arrived, he has not been charged, NBC New York reports.

On October 28th, Jerry "Prince Bee" Grant, an 8 year old child, was tragically struck by a vehicle and has passed away.

As of Sunday, no charges have been filed against the driver and speed does not appear to be a factor in Jerry's death. $4,105 of the $20,000 goal has been raised as of this morning, with 100 percent of the money going "directly to his family".
