DEARBORN, Mich. (WXYZ) — A 16-year-old was arrested for allegedly hitting a 7-year-old with his car.

On Nov. 6, police say kids were getting off the school bus at the end of the day when a vehicle failed to stop, even though the bus' stop sign was extended and red lights were flashing.

The vehicle went around the bus and hit the child, dragging him under the car. The car initially stopped, but once the child was removed from underneath the car, the driver fled the scene.

Police say the child was miraculously not injured.

On Nov. 7, officers located and arrested the suspected driver. He was booked under a number of criminal charges.
