A man was arrested after a student was hit by a car and killed.
Harry Kinney-Ryan was crushed near a shopping center in Liverpool earlier this week.
The 13-year-old struggled in hospital while on life support but never woke up.
A relative who is raising funds to support his family has paid a heartbreaking tribute to the teenager.
Great Uncle Teddy Williams posted on Facebook: “This handsome young fellow is my nephew Harry. He would have just turned 14 on January 12, 2023.
“On Wednesday he was knocked down on East Lancs Road and the life support machine has now been shut down and Harry has had his wings put on.
“My whole family is absolutely devastated, of course. Harry is my sister’s grandson.
He added: “I don’t know how we’re going to move on from here, but we have to be strong and our lives have to go on. Harry will be young forever.’
Harry was hit by a silver Vauxhall Astra Estate while walking down East Lancashire Road near Stonedale Retail Park at 7.25pm on Wednesday 7 December.
He was taken to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in critical condition, where he died of his injuries yesterday.
A 34-year-old man has been arrested and released on bail pending further investigation while the police investigation into the cause of death from dangerous driving continues.
Detective Sergeant Andy Roper of Merseyside Police said: “Harry’s family is being supported by specially trained family liaison officers as our investigations continue and our thoughts are with them at this sad time.
“If you were traveling on the East Lancashire Road at the time of the incident and have dashcam footage that could assist us in our investigation, or if you have CCTV or information, please get in touch.”
