8-Year-Old Jeremiah “Prince Bee” Grant Killed Crossing Busy Jersey City Street
This story is so sad. 8-year-old Jeremiah, aka Jerry “Prince Bee” Grant, was fatally struck by a car while trying to cross the intersection Christopher Columbus Drive and Grove Street at about 4:30 p.m. Friday. Grant was a member of the Honey Bees, a National Championship winning double dutch team.
Honey Bees founder Takeria Clark told The Jersey Journal the troupe was in Downtown Jersey City raising money for uniforms and for fees for a show at The Apollo and other tournaments.
“We all stopped at the corner and Jerry heard ‘go’ from another jumper and ran in the street,” Clark said. “The car was going so fast. It hit him so hard.”
Sources told the Journal Jerry died at the hospital shortly following the crash.
Jerry was with the group of Honey Bees who appeared on “The Tonight Show” in August following their national championship win.
