Girl Dragged by Van in Hit-and-Run

An 11-year-old girl was dragged "300 to 500 yards" after being hit by a van Sunday evening, according to the Pioneer Press. http://www.twincities.com/mld/twincities/news/local/16573120.htm

The girl was legally crossing Robert street in West Saint Paul when a van hit her while making a left turn. An alert driver who saw the accident forced the van to stop, then called police.

The van's driver was Mauricio Sanchez, 33, of St. Paul. Police arrested Sanchez after chasing him for several blocks.

Police Chief Manila "Bud" Shaver said he did not know if Sanchez knew he had hit the girl or not.
