New Jersey man left his 2-year-old son to die on a Pennsylvania road

Police said a New Jersey man ran a red light causing his SUV to roll over and his son to be thrown from the vehicle onto a Pennsylvania roadway, where he died. 

 say Christopher Kuhn stepped over his 2-year-old son’s body and left him to die on the road as he ran away from the deadly car crash to avoid apprehension for audio speakers stolen from a Walmart in Levittown Town Center

“Here we had a simple retail theft where we would have answered to some charges turned into a fatality,” Tullytown Police Chief Daniel Doyle said. “It’s tragic.”
“The suspect then stepped over the child who was laying in the roadway and fled the scene,” Doyle said. “Officers apprehended him a short distance from the crash.”

The nightmare began shortly after noon at a Philadelphia-area Walmart store where Kuhn, 27, of Hamilton, New Jersey, allegedly left the store without attempting to pay for a $228 sound bar.

Kuhn, driving on a suspended New Jersey license, drove away in his Jeep with his son inside before officers arrived, investigators said. 

A witness told police Kuhn had let the boy climb into the SUV while he covered its license plate with a sweatshirt. 

The witness also said the boy climbed into the rear driver’s side of the Jeep but Kuhn never secured Qaden into a child safety seat.
