According to multiple reports, police were called to a home on Norfleet Street around 2 a.m. Wednesday. Family members of a 1-year-old boy told officers that they were relaxing in their front yard when the child got away from them and ran into the street.



A black Mazda struck the toddler and continued driving.

The child was transported to the hospital by ambulance in stable condition. His leg may have been broken, according to a KSAT report.



The driver, when located, will face charges for failing to stop and render aid, police said.
