A five-year-old boy was knocked down and killed by a drunk driver moments after his mum had dropped him off at kindergarten.
Victim Kamari Jordan was running across the driveway to the Somerset Academy, North Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, when a van pulled out from a line of traffic.
As it turned into the drive it hit Kamari, knocking him to the ground.
A paramedic and trainee nurse tried to save him, but medics at University Medical Center declared him dead on arrival.
Driver Guillermo Cchochi Senobua, 41, hit Kamari “multiple times” on 6th October, his aunt, Tracy Wolfe-Coleman, said in a GoFundMe post.
Police say he tested positive for driving under the Influence and is already wanted in Texas on an earlier DUI case.
Senobua has been remanded in custody at North Las Vegas Community Correctional Center charged with one felony count of driving under the influence (DUI).
He is expected to face further charges of involuntary manslaughter and for not giving his full time and attention to driving.
Some media reports say he attempted to flee the crash scene and was only stopped by angry parents.
Now, a GoFundMe appeal is raising donations to help his mum, Jasmyn Wolfe, pay for her son’s funeral.
His grandmother, Kari Schultz, 51, said: “He was full of life. He gave people hugs and he squeezed them so tight, you know, he just wouldn’t let go.”
Police say their investigation continues.
