Arrest made in hit and run

POSTED: November 2, 2013 12:28 a.m.

An 8-year-old boy received minor injuries after being struck by a pickup truck outside his Forsyth County home.

The truck driver, identified in a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report as 48-year-old Higino Ruiz, reportedly struck the boy. The child had been standing a little more than a foot off his driveway playing in the Holly Park mobile home park on Oct. 21.

According to the sheriff’s report, Ruiz brought the child to the front porch “stating he hit the child and he was sorry and then left without giving any of his information.”

The boy’s parents took him to the hospital for treatment of what the sheriff’s office described as “minor injuries.”

Ruiz was arrested at his Old Atlanta Road home Oct. 22 and charged with felony hit and run, injury by vehicle and driving without a license.
