I would like a little more information before we hang the guy. Was the child in the road? What were the circumstances that caused this accident.

Still the person should have stopped to assist the child. For that they only get one leg cut off. If alcohol, drugs or some lame excuse is the reason then off with their head.

There is no more respect for life. Our society has become very scary.

Does the person even know they hit someone at 6 it's dark. Where were the parents that should have been watching this child. But hope the kid is ok

Not that it is any better, but alot of these situations are YOUNG adults that do not know what to do are are scared $h!tLe$$. Parents need to remember to teach children to ALWAYS stop for an accident. Consequences are far worse for leaving the scene. NO matter if the child is a boy or a girl. Luckily the child seems to be ok and only has scrapes. Please remember we need to teach our young ones HOW to be responsible grown adults. (schools, drivers ed, peers, tv, movies, facebook/twitter do NOT teach all the things that the younger generation needs, they need parental guidence)

I bet the driver panicked, stop, always stop, call 9-1-1 for help. Accidents happen, getting help is no.1 Always be aware of children near streets, slow down, still accidents happen, dont panic, stop, call 9-1-1.I hope the child is fine.

Generally, those that don't stop are either drunk or don't have a license or it's suspended, so they take off. Thankfully the kid wasn't killed but I do hope they find the driver.

Well by the sounds of Fox News report it wasn't the drivers fault it was the kids fault he ran out in traffic so if your out there person it should be safe to come forward and appolygize cause u may not even now what u did
