Child seriously injured by hit and run driver

A young child playing outside Sunday afternoon, April 2, was struck by a vehicle who left the scene, reports Bledsoe County Sheriff Jimmy Morris. The two-year-old child was found on US Highway 127 south, just north of the four-way, in front of its residence, and was taken to a Chattanooga medical facility for treatment.

Apparently the child, got out of its parents view and wondered near the busy roadway, said Sheriff Morris.

He said, the child suffered head trauma and multiple bruises and lacerations.The Tennessee Highway Patrol responded to the scene. Details of their investigation were not available Monday evening at press time.

Anyone who may have seen the hit and run incident is asked to contact the Bledsoe County Sheriff’s Department at (423) 447-2197.

    I’m so upset the driver has nit been found. Also why is there no news on this babies father Dominic Dariz was killed July 24th on his way to work?
