South Carolina boy pushes sister out of the way before car hits, kills him

An 11-year-old South Carolina boy pushed his younger sister out of the way of a car before it struck and killed him, the children's mother told local media Tuesday.

La’Darious Wylie and his sister Sha’Vonta, 7, were waiting at a bus stop in Chester on October 27, The Herald reports. As the car approached, La’Darious pushed his sister to safety, and when she got up off the ground, the car had driven off.

“He knew to look out for her,” his mother, Elizaberth McCrorey, told the newspaper.

The boy died the next day. His mother said she donated his organs so other children might survive injuries or illness. Michelle Johnson, 57, was charged with felony hit and run resulting in death, which carries up to 25 years in prison. Johnson posted $25,000 bond Friday, and did not explain her actions in court.

The funeral for La'Darious was set for Thursday at 3 p.m at Browns Chapel AME Zion Church in Chester.
