    Teen arrested in connection with hit and run in East Harlem

    EAST HARLEM, Manhattan (WABC) — Police have arrested and charged a 14-year-old after leaving the scene of a car accident in East Harlem.

    That accident left a six-year-old with brain bleed and multiple skull fractures.

    Police say the victim, identified as Henry Diaz-Marin, was struck by a moped and thrown to the ground on Sunday inside Thomas Jefferson Park near East 111 Street and 1 Avenue.

    The child’s family said the moped driver had a passenger and initially tried to avoid striking the child. He initially stayed on the scene but took off when he heard sirens, witnesses say.

    Diaz-Marin was rushed to Harlem Hospital in critical condition with skull fractures and later transported to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center.

    The 14-year-old was arrested on Thursday and charged with leaving the scene of an accident with serious injury.
