MEMPHIS, TN – Tate County officials say a man was drunk when he hit a small boy with his SUV and drove away.

Jaime Perez, 35, is charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license. Investigators also believe Perez is an illegal immigrant. He is accused of hitting 5 year-old Frank Brooks on County Line Road in Tate County.

The boy’s parents talked only to Eyewitness News Everywhere about the accident they say happened just a few feet away from the family’s home.

“He was a happy, smiling kid. They would call him ‘Frankie Blue Eyes,'” said Frank’s mother, Frankie.

“My brother and I… we had our sons a day apart. It’s really hard. I loved him like my own,” said Frank’s uncle, Mike Brooks.

Family members say Frank was an angel, who was loving and full of energy. He was killed on Saturday, May 24, 2008, right in front of his brother and sister. The day before he was hit, the family says it rained and Frank wanted to play in the mud with his brother and sister. Family members say Frank walked to the side of the road to pick up his sister’s shoe, and that is when he was hit.

“He had blood coming out of his ears, his eyes were still open,” said Frankie. “He didn’t have time to blink or hurt. It was over that fast.”
