Man arrested after leaving toddler in road thrown from car by hard crash.
Christopher Kuhn, 27, of Hamilton has been arrested after leaving his toddler son to die on the road. On Tuesday, Kuhn went into a Walmart in Levittown, Pa. and stole $228 worth of speakers. When attempting to flee the scene, he didn't attempt to buckle his son in properly. Instead, he used the time he had to cover his license plate with a sweatshirt and then sped away.
While attempting to get away from the scene, Kuhn ran a red light and crashed into two cars. And because his son was buckled incorrectly, he was thrown from the vehicle onto the road. Kuhn looked at his son and then ran away from the scene of the crime.
Bob James, of the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, made the following statement:
"It was more important for Mr. Kuhn to attempt to get away from a misdemeanor retail theft by covering his license plate with his sweatshirt than it was to properly secure his two-year-old son in his car seat before fleeing at a high rate of speed."
Fernando Medrano, one of the drivers that crashed into Kuhn said the following:
"I saw it when the baby flew, and I saw Kuhn run away," Medrano told the police station. "I just can't believe he ran away."
Kuhn has been charged with third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle and retail theft and his bail has been set for $5 million.
