JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — A Clermont man is charged after hitting a child with his vehicle and fleeing the scene on Friday evening.

The driver hit the left side of the girl, causing her to fall down and suffer minor injuries, FHP said.

FHP said the man drove away from the scene but was later located by law enforcement. He was charged with leaving the scene of a crash.
