Child struck in Moncrieff hit and run

A CHILD is reported to have been the victim of a hit and run  incident in Moncrieff last evening.

Police say that at about 5.20pm on Monday (November 5), a blue vehicle entered Rochelle Street from the roundabout of Slim Dusty Drive and collided with the child.

The driver stopped briefly, but police believe they didn’t attempt to check the welfare of the child before leaving the area along Rochelle Street.
