Boy, 12, hit by driver Sunday remains critical today
PROVIDENCE -- Eric Jimenez, the 12-year-old injured by a hit-and-run driver on Bucklin Street Sunday, remains in critical condition at Hasbro Children's Hospital this afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Eric's brother, 8-year-old Ivan, was killed when the pair were struck while walking home, the police said.
Ivan's wake was held last night at Bell Funeral Home on Broad Street, where a funeral service was slated for 10 a.m. today.
The accused hit-and-run driver, Dennis H. Cherry Jr., 26, of no permanent address, faces two felony charges for allegedly having left the scene of the accident, and he is being held at the Adult Correctional Institutions. He also has been charged with leaving his lane of travel, operating left of center, and failure to show due care.
