Two-year-old hit by car in Jamestown; driver charged


JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — In Jamestown, a two-year-old child was hit by a car while walking with family members.

Police responded to the call on Thursday around 9:30 p.m.

Police say the driver of the vehicle that hit the child on East 5th Street didn’t stop. Instead, he drove into a parking lot at East 4th and East 2nd streets.

That’s where a group of people who saw the crash approached and broke the driver’s side window.

The child was taken to UPMC Chautauqua to be treated for a broken leg, but has since been released.

On Monday morning, police announced that Nicholas Evans, 27, was accused of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and several vehicle and traffic charges.

Evans will answer the charges in court at a later date.
