The mother of a 5-year-old who was hit and killed by a driver in January said she is not getting any answers from police on the progress of the investigation.

Elijah Taylor was hit and killed by a red truck on New Ashland Place. Police said they instantly had some good leads that the driver lived in the neighborhood where Taylor was hit.

“I constantly call and ask for information but I'm not getting any information,” said Taylor's mother Shameka Wilson.

Taylor's family is also frustrated by lack of help of help from the community.

“Police can only do so much, but people will no longer talk to the police, so they have nothing to go on, you cannot take a whole truck and hide it,” said LaWanda Wilson, Taylor's grandmother.

The family is struggling to cope without the boy that brought a smile to their face. Taylor would have turned 6 in April and would have graduated from kindergarten earlier in May.
