Man sought in hit-run that killed boy, 2, crossing street with mother turns self in to police


PHILADELPHIA — Police say a man being sought in a hit-and-run crash last spring that killed a 2-year-old boy crossing a Philadelphia street with his mother has turned himself in to police.

A police spokesman said 22-year-old Miguel Colon turned himself in Monday at the main police headquarters in Philadelphia.

The city last week offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction.

Police allege that Colon was behind the wheel of a car that struck David Aliea and his 19-year-old mother at about 7 p.m. on April 13 in the city's Kensington section.

Officials said the woman was critically injured but recovered quickly and remained at David's bedside at St. Christopher's Hospital until he succumbed to his injuries three days later.
