On 4-01-2013 around 5:30pm officers responded to Boulder Park Dr and Brownlee Rd in southwest Atlanta regarding a child struck by a vehicle call. Upon arrival officers found a 12 year old child deceased on the sidewalk. The preliminary investigation indicates that the vehicle was traveling east on Boulder Park Dr when it struck the child as he crossed the street. The vehicle then left the scene. The driver later turned himself in to police in Clayton County and is now in Atlanta Police custody. The accident remains under investigation and charges are pending against the driver.
The name of the child is not being released at this time. I am awaiting the driver’s name and will release that along with the charges when I receive that information.
