DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — A Dartmouth woman was arrested Saturday night and charged with a hit and run after allegedly striking a teen.
Around 9 p.m., police and other emergency responders were called to the parking lot of the North Dartmouth Mall for a crash where one person was injured.
When officers arrived, they found that the vehicle involved had taken off from the scene.
