Christopher Kuhn was in a hurry when he left a Walmart in Levittown, Pennsylvania Oct. 3. The 27-year-old had allegedly just stolen $228-worth of speakers for a TV set and was rushing to get the merchandise in his Jeep so he could flee the scene 

In fact, he was in such a hurry, that he didn't have time to secure his 2-year-old son Qadan, who had climbed into the backseat, in a seatbelt. He did, however, have time to cover the car's license plate with a sweatshirt. 


Witnesses confirmed they saw Kuhn not buckle his child up.

By the time police arrived at the Walmart, Kuhn and his son were driving away. Soon after they left, Kuhn ran a red light and T-boned another car that crashed into a third vehicle.

The crash ejected his son into the roadway. 

After the crash, Kuhn ran away and even stepped over his injured son before fleeing. He was caught and arrested a short distance away from the crash. Qadan was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. 


"It was more important for Mr. Kuhn to attempt to get away from a misdemeanor retail theft by covering his license plate with his sweatshirt than it was to properly secure his two-year-old son in his car seat before fleeing at a high rate of speed," said Bob James of the Bucks Co. district attorney's office.

Diana Williams, family friend, said Kuhn has a lot of problems. 

"Nobody knows what was going through his mind. Not to excuse what he did, but he has a lot of problems. He had a lot of things going on in his mind," she said. "I can tell you right now that he is in his own private hell, and he is going to suffer and hold on to this for the rest of his life."


Kuhn was charged with third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle, retail theft and other related charges. 

He had a shared custody arrangement with Qadan's mother. 


"Instead of picking up her child last night at 8 o'clock, she got to go visit her son the last time in a hospital," James said. "Her deceased son."
