A Connecticut man was called Friday morning in a hit-and-run accident that injured a child
BOSTON – A Connecticut man has been called in connection with a Friday morning hit-and-run incident that injured a child, according to a statement from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.
Therese Tre Hamilton, 30, of Hartford, Connecticut, was filed Friday in the West Roxbury arrondissement of Boston Municipal Court. The statement said he is accused of leaving the scene of a car crash that caused personal injury, in connection with a crash that injured a child outside the Boston Police Academy earlier Friday morning, according to the statement.
Assistant District Attorney Emerson Pena requested $5,000 bail. Instead, a judge imposed a $1,500 bail and ordered Hamilton not to drive without a license, the attorney general’s office said.
A person charged in connection with a separate crash that injured a different child on Wednesday, September 29, in the District of Columbia Road and Interval Street, is expected to stand trial at a later time in the Roxbury section of Boston Municipal Court, according to the statement.
The attorney general’s office said the facts of this case and additional details would be revealed at the time of the indictment.
“First of all, I am grateful that the battered children are recovering from their injuries. Any of these incidents could have been fatal, and fortunately none of the child victims were more seriously injured than they did. My office is available to these brave children and their families. To ensure they have all the resources and services they need,” Attorney General Rachel Rollins said. “I would also like to thank the Boston Police detectives who led these investigations, the members of the Boston EMS and the Boston Fire Department who responded to each incident, and the staff of the Boston Police Academy who came so quickly to the aid of the child victim this morning. Hit and Run, played an instrumental role in identifying Mr. Hamilton, my office works closely with members of law enforcement to hold each individual responsible for harming these children accountable and to improve the safety of everyone in our neighborhoods.”
