The following information was supplied by the Sleepy Hollow Police Department.
Child Struck, No Injuries
On October 9 at 4:32 p.m., a caller reported she had struck a child with her car and the child left the scene with no visible injuries. Police tried to locate the child with the driver and found mother and child on Valley Street. Officer requested an ambulance and medic to look at the child and the child was transported to Phelps Memorial Hospital for precautionary measures only, said Police Lieutenant Anthony Bueti.
Friends Don’t Let Friends…Drive
Police were called on Oct. 10 at 3:50 p.m. by a Munroe Avenue resident saying two women were on her lawn, in their car. The woman also told police that the women had switched places in the vehicle, driver and passenger changing sides.
The car was towed with minor damage done to village property (the patch of grass between sidewalk and curb) and the resident’s lawn. Police issued the actual driver a summons for driving without a license or learner’s permit and a summons to the actual passenger who allowed her to drive the car. The passenger said she was teaching her friend how to drive. Perhaps the driver got nervous and somehow went off the road, speculated Bueti.
