LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - Police in Lowell have cited a driver they say left the scene after striking a 4-year-old trick-or-treater.

Police say the boy was walking with his mother and other children at around 7:20 p.m. Monday when he was struck by a vehicle.

Capt. Timothy Crowley says the driver stopped, exited the vehicle, then got back inside and drove away.

The boy suffered a laceration to the head and was hospitalized with injuries not considered life threatening.

Police located the driver a short time later. Crowley says 27-year-old Carlenys Arroyo, of Lowell, was cited with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. She could not immediately be reached for comment.
