Norwich — Police have charged a 54-year-old woman in connection with a hit-and-run Friday evening that resulted in injuries to a 10-year-old boy.

Police said they received a 911 call at 6:47 p.m. for a report of a pedestrian who had been hit by a vehicle on Norwich Avenue in Taftville, in the area of Dairy Queen.

Taftville firefighters responded with Norwich police, who discovered the vehicle involved had left the scene. The boy, who was initially unconscious, was taken by ambulance to The William W. Backus Hospital with what police described as injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.
