Last week, a 12 year old skateboarder was sent to the hospital after being stuck by a car in Sheboygan, WI. Gerardo Jaime was crossing the street at 8:15pm when he was struck by a driver who apparently got out to look back and then eventually just leaving the scene.
In an article, Gerardo Jaime's mother comments on the accident "It would have been a little different in my heart if he would have stopped to see if my son was OK, because accidents do happen," she said. "But he didn't even go back to check and just took off. If he was that cold about what he did, I think he deserves to sit some time."
The driver 19, was later arrested after Jaime gave a description of the car. Collin Horness is being cited for hit and run causing injury and failure to yield to a pedestrian. As for Gerardo Jaime we hope for a speedy recovery!
