A 12-year-old boy waiting for the school bus was hit in the arm by the mirror of a hit-and-run car at about 7:30 a.m. Oct. 18 at Davis and Hazelton streets in Masury, Brookfield police said.
The car was driven by a 15-year-old girl, police said.
The boy, who had redness and bruising on his right arm, gave police a piece of the car’s mirror that broke off when it hit him, said police, who received the report at about 4 p.m.
The boy could not identify who was driving and gave a description of the car, police said.
A day after the incident, police obtained video footage from a nearby surveillance camera that matched the description of the car, and revealed more details of the car. Police said they drove around the neighborhood and found the car at 8186 Davis St. They identified the driver as a 15-year-old girl who had her learner’s permit. A passenger in the car was 18-year-old Julieann E. Daigle, of 8186 Davis, who also was on a learner’s permit, police said. Daigle owned the car, police said.
Police said the girl and Daigle said they thought they had hit a box and not a person.
The girl was cited for violating her learner’s permit restrictions and leaving the scene, and Daigle was cited for allowing the girl to drive, police said.
