Man, 27, charged in Niagara Falls hit-and-run that injured 12-year-old pedestrian

NIAGARA FALLS – Niagara Falls police have charged a man with leaving the scene of an accident in connection with Tuesday's hit-and-run that seriously injured a 12-year-old boy.

Durrell Tabb, 27, was charged leaving the scene of a serious injury accident and driving without a license when he was arrested Wednesday morning, Niagara Falls Traffic Division Capt. Angela Munn said in a news release. Tabb is cooperating with the investigation, according to police.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Falls police said they located the vehicle involved in a hit-and-run that happened at about 6 p.m. on 25th Street near Niagara Street.

The boy tripped in the crosswalk and fell. While he was down in the crosswalk, he was struck by what police described as an older white, four-door vehicle with dark, tinted windows. The driver left the scene heading west on Niagara Street, according to police.

The boy was taken to Niagara Falls Medical Center by his family, and then was transferred to Women and Children's Hospital in Buffalo, police said. He suffered multiple fractures to his pelvis, according to police, but may be released from the hospital later Wednesday.

The police department's Crash Management Team is continuing to investigate.
