CHESTER, Pa. -

A 4-year-old boy was struck and killed by a van at Upland Street and East 11th Street in Chester, Delaware County. It happened Saturday afternoon.

Police say 4-year-old Carder Brown jumped out of a parked gold Dodge Charger to run towards his mom just as a van was driving down the street.

The van hit the 4-year-old. The 42-year-old driver of the van did stop and remain at the scene until emergency personnel arrived.

Authorities say this appears to be a tragic accident, and they are not expecting any charges.

Brown was transported to Crozer Chester Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Adding to the heartbreak, the boy and family just returned from the funeral of his father, Derrick Brown. Police say Brown was shot last week. The family says Derrick was an innocent bystander caught in an exchange of gunfire. They also lost yet another relative to gun violence six months ago.

The case remains under investigation by Chester city and county accident investigators and reconstruction teams.
