Man hits 3-year-old on scooter in Superior Township and leaves scene, deputies say
A man was arrested Sunday after Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies say he backed a car into a 3-year-old girl on a scooter in a parking lot on MacArthur Boulevard in Superior Township and left the scene.
The girl, who suffered some scrapes and bruises, was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital for evaluation after the 8:40 p.m. incident, sheriff's department spokesman Derrick Jackson said.
Jackson said deputies followed the 19-year-old man's car after being flagged down by bystanders in the 9000 block of MacArthur Boulevard. The man did not initially pull over for deputies, Jackson said.
The man was expected to be arraigned on criminal charges this afternoon.
