A desperate dad told a driver who had just backed up into a fast food restaurant, “Move forward — you’re on my kids!” as his son lay fatally injured, according to court documents released Friday.
Driver Kwasi Oduro, 73, did move forward, driving away and continuing even as a witness told him he’d injured the children. He was arraigned Friday night on charges of leaving the scene of the Bronx accident that killed 7-year-old Ethan Villavicencio and injured his sister and father as they went for ice cream the evening before.
Witnesses described patrons scrambling, running and wondering what had happened as the boy lay covered in glass and his little sister cried for their mother.
“It was a horrible moment, and I’ll remember it forever,” restaurant owner Shah Mohammad said.
