|Saint Louis, Mo (AP) - A teenager has pleaded guilty after running over and killing a toddler in June in north St. Louis County.|
Charles Guice appeared in St. Louis Circuit Court on Thursday and pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, a felony. He could get up to four years in prison when he is sentenced on January 16.
On June 16, Guice, of the 1700 block of Nemnich Road in St. Louis County, was speeding and hit Darion Griffin, 2, as he played in front of his grandmother's house in the 1500 block of Redman Boulevard.
Guice was 17 at the time of the incident. Guice told police he fled the scene because he was scared.
Police say Darion was struck as he tried to cross the street to play with a relative. Darion’s 17-year-old aunt was also hit, while trying to pull Darion out of the path of the vehicle, police say.
