A 13-year-old is in hospital following a hit and run in Burlington.
On Friday, Halton Police say the boy was crossing the street at Appleby Line and Taywood Drive when he was hit by a white Volkswagen that was trying to turn left onto Taywood Drive.
The teenager was taken to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, but was later airlifted to a children’s trauma centre in critical but non-life threatening condition.
The driver-who fled the scene-was soon found by police and arrested for failing to stop at a scene of an accident causing bodily harm.
23 year old Stephen Balon of Burlington will appear in Court December 7.
The bike rider has been upgraded to stable condition.
