5:33 am
herself in. the vehicle coincidentally right next-door to city hall, where that reward offer from the mayor came from yesterday morning, he and his staff know that the vehicle police were looking for was right across the street, and the love park garage underground. strangely the best evidence police had showing the car hit the little boy would have been her best offense that this female driver didn't do anything wrong because the surveillance showed clearly that this four year old boy for some reason not being watched close enough, and out at night darted out between two parked cars and she had no warning and no way to see him since those parked cars are taller than him. now the police here, who were in charge of the accident investigation division, were asked legitimate question: is it possible, and is it okay, if this 27 year old woman driving just feared for her own life after the accident, maybe even hearing about the story that we mentioned yesterday, that milwaukee driver just the night before who did stop after his van hit and killed a little boy and then he got shot and killed
5:34 am
because of it. >> ask your question, the question sometimes there are some street justice done as a result of that. and we've had that in the past where the person that was driving the vehicle would drive it a safe distance away, call 911 then report it. and that's understandable if anyone felt fearful that they were going to really get seriously hurt, they should pull away. but call 911 and report, and let us investigate the crashment than could happen. so good chance just a crash no impairment and likely no channel, it might ends up in a court but certainly not criminal court in a case like. that will and everybody has to be aware this time of year little ones will be out there they'll run out there it happens every spring and every summer. so exercise caution driving. >> reporter: as you just heard, this case clearly shows and reminds everybody of two things. if you are driving just stop. because an accident would just be considered an accident if would you just stop.
5:35 am
it becomes a crime and mandatory prison time crime when you leave the scene after fatal accident. secondly if you are watching, or babysitting or guardian or the parent specially of a little child you got to watch them closely you can't have kids running into the street specially out at night. most four year old probably in bed at 6:30, this one out at night and for some reason able to run out in the street where cars are coming by. >> good reminders steve, thank you. >> hillary clinton will continue to meet voters in iowa today. yesterday clinton made her first campaign stop since announcing her presidential bid during this appearance at a community college she spoke about building a better economy and fixing the political system. she did not layout any specifics about how she planned to achieve her goal. they are lofty ones at that. but says policy specifics will be unveiled later. happening today governor tom wolf heads to montgomery, pennsylvania his latest stop in his jobs to pay tour. >> democrats plans to discuss
