CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Authorities are looking for a driver who hit and killed a 6-year-old boy in Charlotte and then left the scene.

Family members told WBTV that somebody in a van hit Anthony Santos Castellon-Rivera and drove off as the boy and his family crossed the street in a Charlotte neighborhood.

Police said it happened at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday and the boy was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses said the driver of the van stopped and got out after hitting the boy, but then got back in and drove away.

Police described the driver as a Hispanic male in his mid-30s with curly black hair and wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans.

It is believed that he was driving a white work van with a ladder rack on top and a possible South Carolina license plate.
