NORTH READING 一 Chief Michael Murphy reports that the North Reading Police Department has charged an Andover woman in connection with a hit-and-run incident last week.
A 39-YEAR-OLD ANDOVER WOMAN will be summoned to Woburn District Court on charges including Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Involving Personal Injury.
On Wednesday, Oct. 19 at approximately 7:40 a.m., North Reading Police responded to multiple 911 calls reporting a hit-and-run on Lakeside Boulevard, in which a young child being pulled in a wagon by their parent was struck by a motor vehicle. The motorist did not stop at the scene.
The child, age 4, was evaluated at the scene by EMS and treated and released at an area hospital.
A North Reading Police Department investigation soon identified the alleged operator. North Reading Police made contact with her, and she turned herself into police without incident.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
