A 24-year-old Orange County man has been charged following a lengthy investigation after a hit-and-run accident in November that left a young boy seriously injured.

An 8-year-old boy was found lying unresponsive in the roadway after having been struck by a vehicle on Siget Court in the Village of Kiryas Joel in Monroe at about 5 p.m. on Nov. 9. The boy was transported to Westchester Medical Center and treated for serious internal injuries.

The vehicle had fled the scene prior to the arrival of police.

After an extensive investigation, state police identified Yudah Zimmerman of Kiryas Joel as the driver of the vehicle that stuck the child. Zimmerman had been working as a delivery man in the area at the time of the accident.

Zimmerman was charged with leaving the scene of a serious physical injury accident (a felony) and endangering the welfare of a child.

The case was presented before an Orange County grand jury and on Dec. 14 and Zimmerman was indicted on the above charges. He has been remanded to the Orange County jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail pending further court proceedings.
