A police officer was arrested early Wednesday for leaving the scene of an accident after hitting a 13-year-old boy with his vehicle on his way to work at the 115th precinct late Tuesday.
David Walker, 36, was arrested at 1:40 am, for allegedly striking the 13-year-old boy at the intersection of 93rd Street and Jackson Mill Road and fleeing the scene, according to police.
The exact time of the incident Tuesday night is unclear.
Walker told police he stopped at the stop sign, although the child said he didn’t, according to reports.
The officer said that he got out of the car and checked on the boy, offering to drive him home, police said.
The boy refused the officer’s help, but later went to the hospital after telling his parents what happened, according to reports.
Driver is wrong but why is a 13 yr old out at 130 am
I would not get in the car of a stranger that just hit me with his car either. Driver should have called for an ambulance or police. Maybe the boy was trying to be safe and not go in a strangers car.
Totally misleading headline. He did not hit and run. The kid went home and once his parents found out there may some $ in it for them, they took him to the hospital.
