BASSETERRE, St.Kitts (JANUARY 2018)- Police are currently looking into a hit and run incident involving a primary school child while the child’s mother is urging the public to assist with the investigation.

Investigations revealed that the child was struck by a cyclist on a pedal bike and received lacerations to the face.
She was rushed to the Joseph N France General Hospital where she was treated and warded in a stable condition.
