"I just remember holding his hand and sitting on the ground with him," said Andrew Schwab, Taylor’s friend. "Next thing I know, the firefighters came and they called it and they covered him up. That’s when it all started to become real, I guess."
Police said the vehicle, a white Ford or Lincoln SUV, killed White instantly and drove away from the scene. Phoenix Police are hoping witnesses come forward to find the person responsible.
