Help! Hit-and-Run Suspect Sought After Injuring Child

A child was injured in a Cathedral City hit-and-run Wednesday afternoon. A driver in a dark-colored SUV struck the child at the intersection of Ramon Road and Landau Boulevard around 4:20 pm. The driver fled the scene.

The child sustained minor injuries in the hit-and-run and two lanes were briefly shut down following the accident. Cathedral City police are investigating the incident and searching for the suspect.

While the child in this incident made it out alive, many children each year are not so fortunate. In 2014, 19% of the 1,070 children killed in traffic accidents were pedestrians. Of the 207 child pedestrian fatalities, 18% were killed by a hit-and-run driver.

“We’re glad the child was not seriously injured in this crash, and we hope police are able to quickly locate the driver who deserted a hurt child in the street,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
