A toddler was injured in a hit-and-run incident on Springfield Road in Brighton.
The police are now appealing for witnesses to come forward with any relevant information.
The incident took place on Sunday, January 14, around 2.15 pm, when a car struck the young child. Shockingly, the driver involved in the incident did not stop at the scene.
