Three-year-old Boy Crushed Against Building By Hit-and-run Driver

Posted on October 5, 2011 | Written By: iadminlaw

Ruben Ramirez, aged 3, died tragically yesterday when a driver pinned him against a building with her car. According to witnesses, the driver was trying to hit a woman with whom she had been arguing. The boy had been standing with his scooter outside a market late yesterday afternoon, October 3, 2011, while his mother shopped inside.

According to news stories, witnesses reported that the driver hit the boy straight on. Jennifer Silva, who saw the accident, said the whole store shook. She stated that before the accident, two women had been fighting outside of the market, when one of them got into a car that already contained a few other people. The driver, identified by Stockton police as Aushua McDuff-Brown, then tried to mow down the woman she had been arguing with, but hit the boy instead, according to Silva.

Paramedics tried to revive the little boy at the scene before he was transported to St. Joseph’s Medical Center. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Jennifer Silva, a witness, said the child had been waiting for his parents when McDuff-Brown drove a car into him. Silva stated that while the boy was pinned, the driver was still trying to drive forward. She states she told the driver to back up and when the driver finally reversed the car, the boy fell. Silva stated she tried to stop the driver, but the driver fled the scene.

According to Stockton police Lt. Tom Jernigan, as reported in various news stories, the child’s parents had nothing to do with the fight that caused their son’s death. The boy’s tragic death happened around 3:45 p.m. at the Madison Market located at 748 N. Madison Street in Stockton.
