(Newser) – A double tragedy in Chester, Pennsylvania, yesterday, where a toddler was hit and killed by a car after returning from his father's funeral. Police say 4-year-old Carder Brown jumped out of a parked vehicle and ran toward his mother, but was hit by a van as he crossed the street. The driver stayed at the scene, and authorities aren't expecting to file any charges over the accident, MyFox Philly reports. The boy's father, Derrick Brown, was shot last week less than four miles from the scene of his son's death, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports; his family says he was on the way home from work when he got caught in the crossfire of a shooting.
