Christian Reede - hit and run victim - Kokomo, Indiana

Christian Reede, age 13, died on September 13, 2013, at a hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Christian was from Kokomo, Indiana.

On September 12, 2013, Christian was driving his moped on a local street at about 8:45 p.m. He had a buddy, Donte Brown, on the back of the moped.

The moped was struck by a vehicle turning into Highland Springs Subdivision. After striking the juveniles on the moped, the vehicle continued southbound through the Highland Springs Subdivision without returning to the scene of the accident.

Both victims were transported to a local hospital and later air lifted to Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment.

Tragically, Christian passed away the next day. 

Donte Brown is expected to live and is recovering, as of this posting.

The vehicle that plowed into the boys is possibly a white 2005-2007 Ford Escape or Mercury Mariner, possibly missing a right front fog lamp and missing a right front inner fender well. The suspect vehicle should have front end damage.

Christian was exceptionally tall for his age. He had a great sense of humor and a
