GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Grand Rapids police are investigating a hit-and-run crash involving a Buick that hit a four-year-old boy who was sledding in Richmond Park.
Witnesses say two white men in their early twenties were in the vehicle that hit Gabriel Castillo Jr. around 7 p.m. Saturday. A witness got the license plate information, and officers found the car about an hour later at the registered owner's Walker home. Police are now looking to question the car's owner and the person who was driving during the accident.
Gabriel is expected to recover.
"He is a four-year-old boy, he didn't deserve that," said Sarah Alflen, the boy's mother, shortly after the accident. "You could have stopped and at least made sure he was okay."
Alflen told WZZM 13 that her son suffered several broken ribs, a concussion, and a broken collarbone.
