Tuesday night in Thurston County, a 5-year-old boy was badly hurt in a hit-and-run accident. The boy sustained serious facial injuries and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
According to troopers, the boy was in a car that rolled across Yelm Highway. They believe that the car was either hit or cut off by another vehicle. The car ended up running through the fence of a golf course.
The suspect, who had two dogs in his car according to the police, kept driving after the Washington car accident. He was later found at a veterinarian’s office, where he was taken into custody.
An adult and another child in the vehicle that rolled were taken to local hospitals.
