1200 block of North Broad Street
Tuesday morning, August 27, 2013, as the victim was headed to school
Jacob Little was 16 years old (some sources have said 15). He was a student at Monroe High School.
At this point, no suspects have been personally identified. But police have some vague descriptions of the two cars that left the crash scene. One is believed to be a silver Honda Civic or Honda Accord. The other is believed to be a dark-colored Suburban or Chevy Tahoe.
Police believe that Little’s skateboard slipped out from underneath his feet and rolled into the street. He was hit by the cars when he went to retrieve the skateboard.
The accident itself sounds like just that – an accident. But the problem for the two drivers is leaving the scene. If caught, they could be charged with hit and run even if they were not at fault in the initial accident.
