A group of about 85 community members led by local NAACP president Ed Williams marched on Shore Front Parkway last Saturday to call for answers in the death of a 14-year-old boy, Andre Anderson, who was struck and killed by an SUV in September. The group, which included Anderson’s parents, Clive and Audrey, held a vigil at the spot on Shore Front Parkway where the boy was struck. Williams took issue with the Department of Transportation, which is conducting a traffic study along a stretch of SFP that has no traffic lights or stop signs. “How many studies do you have to do,” he asked. He also called for a “full investigation” into Anderson’s death. A police statement issued immediately after the incident indicated that there was “no criminality” and that an investigation was ongoing. “I want to know what was the car doing up on him,” Williams asked. 063p1_xlg.jpg
