CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Police say a 13-year-old has turned himself in after he allegedly struck an 8-year-old boy while driving a dirt bike and then fleeing the scene.

According to police, the boy was struck near Kerruish Park in the 17200 block of Tarkington Road at approximately 6:45 p.m. Saturday. The dirt bike operator then took off.

The boy was taken to South Point hospital and police say he may have a broken femur after the accident.

The 13-year-old was with his grandparents when he turned himself in Sunday morning at the 4th District. Since he is a juvenile, Cleveland 19 will no longer circulate his picture.

Police are still investigating the incident.
