A two-year-old child was struck by a hit-and-run driver in the parking lot of the Richland Mall in Waco. The toddler was taken to the hospital Thursday evening.

Police say the person who hit the child stopped and got out of their vehicle for a moment before driving off.

The two-year-old was hit outside the entrance near the food court to the mall around 6:40p Thursday evening. KWTX is reporting the child suffered scrapes to his face and that his leg was injured.

No details about the vehicle involved have been made available yet. It's a busy time of year, and lots of little ones are also out and about. Let's all try to drive extra carefully around malls, schools, and Halloween activities this weekend.
