Family injured in hit and run in Holiday

Posted: Updated:
HOLIDAY (FOX 13) - Investigators are looking for the driver who plowed through a family sending all them of them to the hospital Saturday afternoon.

Dakota and Jordan Harwood were pushing their four-month-old baby in a stroller along Chatlin Drive when they were hit by a car. All three were brought to the hospital with significant injuries. The child sustained internal injuries and several scrapes.

Neighbors ran outside when they heard the tires screech, the brakes squeal, and loud screams.

"The stroller was tipped on its side. All of the stuff inside it, baby toys cell phones was scattered all around," Mark Williams said.

"Immediately I thought it was my kids," Kaila Clark said.

"As soon as you hear that kind of scream you know it's bad," Estela Rodriguez said.

Neighbors were shocked when the driver got out of the car, offered to call 911 and instead jumped back in his car and sped off leaving both 17-year-old parents and a four-month-old baby lying in the street.

Sarah Williams immediately ran over to help the baby.

"I took the baby because the baby was bleeding from the head," Williams said. "He was breathing and he started crying, but he had a big bleeding bump on his head."

Investigators are looking for a 2000 baby blue Ford Crown Victoria, and neighbors said officials know the driver they're looking for since he lives right around the corner from the crash.
