OSPREY, Fla. (WWSB) - An arrest has been for David Chang who was the driver of a hit-and-run crash that injured a 13-year-old Pine View student in a school crosswalk Tuesday afternoon and drove away.

Investigators say the girl was on a bicycle inside a crosswalk, marked with flashing yellow lights and yellow signage, on East Bay Street about 4:15 p.m. when a dark silver sedan approached her, heading west.

The sedan hit the girl before fleeing the scene westbound on East Bay Street. The girl was air lifted to the hospital where she remains in critical condition.

Additional support counselors were available at Pine View School today along with the school’s counseling team for any students, or parents or who need to talk with someone during this difficult time.
