(East St. Louis, IL) — An 11-year-old East St. Louis boy left in the street by a hit-and-run driver died last night after several other vehicles also drove around him. Police say one driver finally did stop to help Maurice Richards as he lay in the 37-hundred block of State Street. That driver blocked traffic and called 9-1-1, but the fourth-grader died about an hour later at a St. Louis hospital. Police say they are seeking the driver who struck the boy last night about six-thirty.
