TEEN PUSHES NEPHEW TO SAFETY, STRUCK BY TRUCK IN OLNEY

Relatives say 17-year-old Daqua Brown was walking his 12-year-old nephew home from school.

He was at the crosswalk when witnesses say the driver of a truck blew a stop sign and was about to strike both of them.

Brown managed to push his nephew out of the way before he himself was struck.

"The car behind us continued to run off the scene. He got stuck in traffic right where we are standing. I ran down the street, jumped in his car, threw his car in park, I grabbed his keys, pulled him out the car," said Javier Cordero, victim's father-in-law.
