Man wanted in connection to hit-and-run that injured child

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Columbia Police are searching for a man in connection to a hit-and-run that injured a 4-year-old child late last week.

Investigators say Antonio Burkett, 20, is wanted for his involvement in the personal injury of a minor and failure to give information and render aid during the accident at 2322 Two Notch Road on Dec. 22.

Police say Burkett was driving a red 2011 Dodge Caravan, SC tag KVC 523, and struck the child at about 4 p.m. Dec. 22. Investigators say he fled the location without rendering aid or providing information to the victim.

The child and his aunt were taken to the hospital. The child sustained a sprained hand as a result of the accident, and the child's aunt is OK.

Police located the vehicle last week.
