According to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police report, officers were called to an apartment complex along the 1000-block of Skyline View Way, just outside of uptown Charlotte, on Saturday night.

A woman told police her 4-year-old son had been hit by a vehicle around 4:45 p.m. The little boy's leg was broken in the crash.

There is an open park near where the little boy was hit and WBTV has learned the family lives in the apartment complex.
