Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- An eight-year-old boy was struck by a car in Milwaukee Sunday night, later dying from his injuries.

Reports say Jacari Maxwell ran between parked cars and into the street.  The 58-year-old driver of the vehicle has been arrested on tentative charges of operating after suspension, causing death.  Prosecutors will make a decision on whether or not to file formal charges. 

The driver did stay at the scene and cooperated with police. 

Neighbors are now calling for a speed bump to be installed as too many vehicles drive too fast on the street where his children and others play.
