11-year-old girl hospitalized after hit-and-run dirt bike crash
Police say the suspect didn't bother to wait around for police to arrive.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested Friday, weeks after police say he crashed into an 11-year-old girl with his dirt bike, then fled the scene, leaving her injured.
According to an arrest report, the incident took place Tuesday, May 1, just before 8 p.m. on Cane Run Road, at the flood wall near Mike Linnig's restaurant.
Police say then-25-year-old Brian Stinson was riding his dirt bike on the flood wall in a "reckless manner," speeding around several pedestrians on a walking path. That's when police say he hit the 11-year-old girl.
The girl was injured and had to be taken to the hospital. The extent of her injuries is not known.
Police say Stinson chose not to remain on the scene, leaving before police arrived.
According to the arrest report, police collected several clues that led them to believe Stinson was the suspect. As a result, Stinson, who is now 26, was arrested by Louisville Metro Police on Friday morning. He has been charged with first-degree wanton endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident.
He's currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
