The man wanted in the hit-and-run accident in Pitcairn that injured a woman and her 2-year-old son has turned himself in to police.

A witness told Channel 11 he was talking to a woman about the dangers of their road moments before she was hit by a car.

Now that woman and her 2-year-old son are at Forbes Hospital.

“I seen cars just shoom, I can hear them and one guy going errrr all night long,” said Kevin Nelson.

Nelson said speed is an issue on 3rd Street in Pitcairn.

“They aren’t paying attention to who’s coming up the street they are coming too fast you aren’t going to see them,” Nelson said.

Nelson witnessed that exact situation Monday morning as he left his neighbor and her two-year old-son as they began to cross the road.

“Car came flying up the street about 35 mph I hear all this hollering, by the time I turned around I seen my neighbor going up into the air and down to the ground,” Nelson said.

“Guy gets out of the car looks at me and gets back in and drives back down the street,” Nelson said.
