Lawrence Andrews was a running back in Apple Valley, California and he was a very amazing player. His teammates nicknamed him fearless on the field. Unfortunately, we have to report that Lawrence was killed at the age of 14 when he was hit by a car. The driver left the scene of the accident leaving Lawrence to die.
Lawrence was attending his little brothers football game with his step-mother Sarah when a car going around 60 miles per hour hit Lawrence, according to Channel 4 News.
“We looked both ways, and the car was way down there,” said step-mother Sarah Andrews. “It had just turned by the stop sign. The car sped up as it got closer. I barely pulled my younger one out of the way, and I went back to reach for Lawrence, but he wasn’t there.
“The car was gone before my baby even landed from the air.”
Lawrence died at the scene, and now police are looking for help.
Investigators believe the car may be a Nissan 350Z or an Infinity G35.
“Anyone with any information or anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact Deputy R. Grissom or Deputy J. Malocco at the Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station at (760) 240-7400 of Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001,” the SBSD said. “Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78CRIME (27463), or you may leave the information on the We-Tip website at www.wetip.com.”
