Police: Driver flees scene after child struck by car in Olney

PHILADELPHIA, PA (WTXF) - Accident investigators confirmed that it was a city vehicle that was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run that left a child injured. The department to which the vehicle belongs to is unknown at this time. 

Police say a 1 and a half year old child was struck by a white van or pickup truck on the 200 block of West Grange Avenue in the city's Olney section shortly before 2 p.m. Monday. 

Police say the child was taken to Einstein Hospital and is listed in stable condition.
