Northwestern Missouri child dies after hit-and-run


ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — A 4-year-old has died from injuries sustained last week in a hit-and-run crash in northwestern Missouri, and a woman has been charged in the child’s death.

The crash happened around 8 p.m. on St. Joseph street, the News-Press reported.

Police said the child walked out into the street in front of the car and was hit, but the car did not stop.

The child was taken to a local hospital, then flown to a Kansas City hospital. Police confirmed that the child had died.

Officers stopped Suani Karsom about a block from the crash scene, and police say she admitted to hitting the child and driving off. Karsom was driving without a valid license at the time, police said, and has been charged with leaving the scene of an injury crash.
