BUTTE - A young boy was reportedly struck by a vehicle in a Butte trailer court Tuesday afternoon.
Butte-Silver Bow Law Enforcement responded to the 200 block of Hobson Avenue. That's where Elizabeth Ann Bettle, 27, backed her SUV into the little boy who was riding his bicycle in the street, Undersheriff George Skuletich said.
Bettle initially fled from the scene but returned several minutes later, Skuletich said.
The boy suffered minor injuries and was transported to St. James Healthcare.
Bettle is charged with a hit and run with injuries, failure to report an accident, failure to identify self at an accident and unsafe backing into traffic.
