A two year old is hospitalized after being run over by a speeding hit and run driver early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Police say a family was sitting outside on the front porch of their home in the 1400 block of Norfleet, on the city's east side, about 2AM today.
The toddler came out to be with the family, and then ran into the street.
A Mazda, traveling 'faster than the speed limit' ran over the child, then stepped on the gas and sped away.
The child is in serious but stable condition.
Police say they are convinced that the driver of the car know he or she had hit a child, and police have a description and a possible licence plate number.
