A 14-year-old boy in Kentucky is accused of murder after he allegedly stole a car and ran over a pedestrian, killing her.
On Jan. 23, police in Louisville said the juvenile, who was not identified because of his age, was charged with murder, leaving the scene of an accident/failure to render aid, theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 (stolen vehicle), and not possessing an operator’s license, WHAS reported.
Five days earlier, around 8:15 a.m. on Jan. 18, the minor allegedly was operating the stolen Hyundai when he crossed into oncoming traffic, drove onto the sidewalk and hit Santanna Holland, 18.
The victim was rushed to an area hospital, where she was later pronounced dead from blunt-force trauma.
The juvenile boy, police said, abandoned the stolen vehicle at the scene of the crash and fled on foot.
