A 50-year-old driver who hit a 6-year-old girl while driving a car in an apartment complex, gave her apartment building number and left, has been convicted of hit and run.

On the 17th, the Incheon District Court announced that it had sentenced a 52-year-old man A, who was charged with theft and theft under the Act on the Aggravated Punishment of Specific Crimes, a fine of 5 million won.

Mr. A was charged with driving a car on the road in an apartment complex in Yeonsu-gu, Incheon at 12:25 pm on October 16 last year, hitting and injuring a 6-year-old sheep B and then running away.

Ms. B, who was hit by A's vehicle while riding a baby's bicycle, injured her leg and was diagnosed with a dislocation for 4 weeks.

At the trial, Mr. A claimed, "The victim suddenly jumped out onto the road (in the apartment complex) and hit a vehicle."

However, the court judged that Mr. A's intention to escape from the scene without revealing his personal details was sufficiently recognized.

Judge Kang said, "Even though the young victim complained that the defendant was sick, he gave only the apartment building number he lived in and handed over the victim to his older sister, who was only in the fifth grade of elementary school, and then left the scene of the accident. “, he explained.

"The injury suffered by the victim is not light, and the defendant has a history of being punished for traffic crimes in the past."We have considered the fact that the defendant and the victim have reached an agreement,” he said.
