Hit-and-run driver who dropped child at hospital comes forward

Her heart may have been in the right place but Broward Sheriff’s investigators feel her head was not when the hit-and-run driver disappeared after taking a 4-year-old child to the hospital.

The woman reversed course and came forward after seeing news reports about the incident and the televised pleas of the child’s mother, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

About a week ago a babysitter was walking with three children in the 2700 block of North State Road 7 when a Chrysler 200 drove out of the parking lot of the Lauderdale Lakes Shoppes, investigators said.

It was about 12:45 p.m. on March 14 when the car struck Zhion Cooper, 4, of Pompano Beach, and knocked over a stroller with a toddler inside. Witnesses saw the stroller fall into the street but the toddler was not hurt, officials said.
