Two Dearborn children hospitalized after hit-and-run Incident on Dearborn’s Southwest side

DEARBORN, MI — On June 26, 2022, two children were injured in a hit-and-run traffic collision in the area of Ross and Banner St. on Dearborn’s west side. 

A white Pontiac Grand Prix was reportedly traveling in excess of the posted speed limit, heading westbound on Ross from Telegraph when it struck the two children as they attempted to cross the street. The driver briefly exited the vehicle to remove the injured children from the middle of the roadway before driving off. The driver did not render aid to the children, or report the incident to authorities.

Dearborn public safety officers responded immediately and provided emergency aid at the scene before transporting the children to Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit. Both children are expected to make a full recovery.

The hit-and-run driver was described by witnesses as a male with a thin build wearing a white shirt and sunglasses (photos attached). The white Grand Prix appears to have a temporary license tag in the upper left corner of the rear window.

The Dearborn Police Department is encouraging anyone with information that can lead to the driver’s identity to contact the Dearborn Police Department. If you wish to remain anonymous, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

Dearborn Police Chief Issa Shahin stated, “We have seen far too often how reckless driving can have deadly consequences. Luckily, that was not the result of this situation. I urge the driver to do the right thing and come forward, otherwise we will use every tool at our disposal to identify and apprehend this individual.”

Case Number: 22-39935
