Suspect Arrested for Buena Vista Road Hit and Run involving Teen
Malcolm Johnson is Free on Bond after Striking Teen on Buena Vista Road
The suspect in a Hit and Run accident on Buena Vista Road was scheduled for a preliminary hearing here at Recorder’s Court but according to jail records he bonded out early this morning.
A witness said onlookers were shocked at the scene, a man speeding down Buena Vista Road appeared to show no regard for children crossing at the busy intersection.
A witness said the impact sent the teen victim airborne.
The victim was transported to the hospital with extensive injuries.
The suspect sped off to an apartment complex off Warm Springs Road where he was taken into police custody a short time later.
Malcolm Johnson was arrested and charged with three counts including leaving the scene of an accident, failure to render aid and duty to report an accident or injury.
The investigation is ongoing and Detectives will determine exactly how fast Johnson was driving when he struck the teen.
Johnson is currently free on bond but the charges could be upgraded if the victim does not survive those critical injuries.
