Child Struck By Car, Driver Leaves The Scene
Deputies from the Sheriff’s Department are looking for burgundy Chevrolet Tahoe.
That’s because a vehicle matching that description hit a 21-month-old baby on Wednesday, at approximately 4:50 p.m.
The accident occurred in the alleyway between Arch Street and Race Street.
The child had to be airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles where she is listed in stable condition.
According to Sheriff’s officials, the driver of the Tahoe stopped, got out of his car, and told the child's mother to take her to the hospital. He then got back into his vehicle and fled the scene. He is described as a male Hispanic, approximately 25 years old, with a medium build.
