Man gets jail time for hit-and-run that killed St. Joseph 5-year-old

Author:

A driver who struck and killed a 5-year-old St. Joseph boy in an April hit-and-run has been sentenced in court on Thursday.

KSTP reports that Jeremy Brian Ulik was sentenced to 60 days in jail and four years of probation having previously pleaded guilty to one count of failing to stop at a collision, causing injury or death.

Ulik was driving a Chevy Trailblazer through St. Joseph on April 13 when he hit Cody Nuckolls, who had been waiting with his mother for his sister to get off a school bus.

The criminal complaint says Nuckolls ran out into a lane of traffic, but his mother did not see the impact as her view was blocked by the bus, saying that when she saw him he was injured and trying to stand up.

Following his arrest, Ulik told police he knew he'd hit the 5-year-old, but believed him to be OK because he saw him standing as he drove away.

Nuckolls later died in the hospital.

WJON reports that Ulik, who has no prior criminal record, was tracked down using CCTV footage obtained from the school bus.
