Timothy Keith

Timothy Keith, the 5-year-old boy who was hit by a cab driver in Brooklyn earlier this month, died days later from his injuries.

Timothy was walking with his parents on Hicks Street in Cobble Hill on the afternoon of April 14 when, according to NYPD, he ran into the street and was struck by a cab driver.

The driver told police he “couldn’t stop in time.” He was not charged.

It was reported on April 16 that Timothy was brain dead. He died the next day, according to a web site set up to accept donations to help the Keiths pay for funeral and travel expenses.

Timothy and his parents were in from DC, on their first family trip to the city.
