NORTH BRANCH, Minn. — North Branch police say an 11-year-old boy has died after being hit by a car last week.

The department said Monday that Dallas Kasper of North Branch died from his injuries Saturday. It says Kasper was walking along a road with his father on Aug. 21 when a 46-year-old female driver drifted across the road and hit him.

Police say the woman stopped and tried to help. Kasper was flown to an area hospital in critical condition.

Police say the investigation is ongoing while they wait for accident reconstruction and toxicology reports. They haven't identified the woman.

Friends and neighbors are raising money to cover medical and funeral costs for the Kasper family.
