Child injured on Fauntleroy Way, taken to hospital

A 3-year-old boy was taken to Harborview Medical Center this past hour with injuries from an incident police are still trying to sort out. It happened in the 5200 block of Fauntleroy Way SW; police were told the child was hit by a vehicle, but no one has a description. No info so far on any other circumstances, including who if anyone was supervising him at the time. If you saw anything, please let police know.

    Yikes, hope the kid is okay.  Hope the driver is dealing with this okay as well.  I don’t know the situation, but imagine anyone involved is pretty distraught over it.

      You didn’t read the story.

        Actually I did read it.  You must be making assumptions.

    My boyfriend saw the tail end of it and it left him visibly and mentally shaken. 

    I am honestly confused as to how someone could hit a kid with a car and not stop to help. 

    The lack of outreach and rage from the community is astonishing

    This is the father of the child that was hit. Please if anyone has any info please get in touch. My wife and I have been in harbor view for the last day and a half. He is recovering. I do not want to discuss his injuries on an open forum. I am hoping the driver will come forward and help resolve the matter. No one was fatally injured and mistakes do happen. Please any help would be appreciated.

    Very, very sad.  How could you drive away after that?

    My thoughts are with you and your family, Brandon.

Sorry, comment time is over.
