CARSON : Motorist Sought in Death of 8-Year-Old
A motorist who is responsible for the death of an 8-year-old boy in Carson was being sought Friday.
Allen Cooper Jr. of Carson died Wednesday at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center of injuries he suffered two days earlier, Deputy Russell Shapley said.
The youngster was walking across Santa Fe Avenue between Monroe and Carson streets about 3:45 p.m. Monday when he was struck by a late 1980s dark blue or black Cadillac, possibly an Eldorado, that was northbound on Santa Fe.
“He was on his way home from a park,” Shapley said. “He had just stepped off the curb and it was raining. It’s possible the driver didn’t even know the boy was hit.”
