Driver in Fatal Hit-and-Run Expected to Surrender
Police have recovered the vehicle that struck and killed a 4-year-old boy, Abdul Wilson, on Monday. The driver is expected to turn herself in to authorities today.
Police told NBC10 they recovered the black Ford Edge that struck and killed Abdul Wilson around 9 p.m. Tuesday in an underground parking garage at Love Park. They also say the driver’s attorney is in touch with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. She is expected to turn herself in Wednesday, according to investigators.
Friends and neighbors gathered Tuesday at a memorial on the corner of 57th and Litchfield streets to remember the young boy, who was also known as Lateef.
Mayor Nutter on Tuesday offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver. No word on if the reward is being claimed.
