• Pennsylvania enacts tougher hit-and-run law

    Updated:
    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A new law in Pennsylvania is toughening penalties for hit-and-run violations, inspired by the death of a 5-year-old boy in northeastern Pennsylvania.

    Gov. Tom Corbett on Monday signed "Kevin's Law," which increases the mandatory minimum for leaving the scene of a fatal vehicle accident from one year to three years.

    It's named for Kevin Miller, who was killed shortly before Christmas in 2012 as he crossed the street with his family.

    His death was one of five similar incidents in Luzerne County in 2012 that involved drivers who fled the scene of accidents.
