The Detroit driver who stopped after striking a 10-year-old boy is in critical condition his family said Thursday.
Steve Utash, a tree trimmer from from Roseville, Mich., struck David Harris as he stepped off a curb onto a busy residential street in front of a gas station. He pulled over his vehicle to check on the child when a mob of about 30 people in the neighborhood assaulted him.
Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody said the driver sustained head injuries from the assault and “could potentially die.”
“He got his,” one witness told the Detroit Free Press. “He got beat up real bad.”
