View Comments ()



    A woman died this last night and her 6-year-old son is in critical condition after a hit and run accident in Roger’s Park.

    Maria Worthon, 48, was crossing the street with her son on the 7000 block of Greenview Avenue when a Pontiac Grand Prix, heading south on Greenview, plowed into them.

    The vehicle then sped off.  Police later arrested the driver.

    A witness said it sounded like an explosion.

    Worthon died on the scene and her son was taken to Children’s Memorial Hospital.

    A resident of the neighborhood said the cars run the stop sign at Greenleaf and Greenview regularly.
