COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A two year old girl has been released from the hospital after being hit by a truck on August 24. The accident occurred on Wickham Dr. near St. Mary's Rd.

According to the police report, the toddler was struck while in her stroller. Her father says she suffered abrasions to her head and her knee had to be reconstructed.

The driver of a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado told police he didn't know what he hit. He also reportedly left the scene after allegedly being hit by the father. He later returned when police arrived.

While in the hospital the toddler's condition improved, downgrading from unsatisfactory to satisfactory condition.
