HILLIARD, Ohio (WCMH) — A two-year-old girl has been hospitalized Monday after a crash in Hilliard, according to local police.
The City of Hilliard Division of Police said a car struck a 2-year-old girl around 8:40 a.m., in the 3400 block of Fishinger Road. She had wandered out of her grandparents’ home into the roadway before being hit near the curb.
Medical crews took the girl to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in critical condition. HPD later said she was in serious, but stable condition.
“Our detectives remain in close contact with the child’s family, and we join our community members in wishing her a full recovery,” said HPD Sgt. Kris Settles.
The vehicle that struck the child drove away after the crash, but police have since identified it and said everyone involved has been cooperative with investigators. HPD said it has not filed any charges at this time, and speed was not a factor in the crash.
Police continue to investigate and Fishinger Road remained closed as of 11 a.m. in the area of Smiley and Dublin roads.
