After jumping into his car, he hastily put his son in without killing him, reported FOX 29.
Kuhn drove a red light and collided with two other vehicles, the impact threw his son on the road.
The police said Kuhn stopped to look at his injured son, but stepped over the toddler before running away from the scene.
"It was more important for Mr. Kuhn to get off his license plate with his sweatshirt by a cover-up from a negligent retail theft than it was to properly secure his two-year-old son in his car seat before he fled at high speed," said Bob James of Public prosecutor's office of Bucks.
The boy was declared dead in a hospital. The police say he is not safe.
Kuhn continues to be detained on $ 5 million bail.
