A man is now under arrest in connection with the hit and run that killed a 14-year-old boy in Bucks County.Police said Carlos Reyes, 37, is an illegal alien.
The accident happened on Sunday night on Street Road at Kingston Way in Bensalem.
Reyes entered district court Monday night in Bristol borough.
Police said he ran down 14-year-old Rasheen Newkirk, then took off.
The teenager was run over by a second vehicle, but that driver stopped.
The family said Rasheen was a special needs child, who was going to the store at the time of the accident.
"He loves school. He loves to sing. He just love to dance," Rasheen's aunt Sharon Newkirk said.
Police found Reyes' car early Monday morning in Bensalem.
They said he bent the license plate to elude authorities, because he did not have a driver's license.
"He is very sorry of the accident. He really feels bad about the family. He doesn't know what to do," translator Esthella Forget said.
"He is remorseful. He's afraid understandably so," Officer Tim Clark said.
A preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 7.
Bail was first set at $100,000, but was increased to $500,000 after Reyes couldn't remember where he lives.
