A Wilmerding woman is accused of leaving the scene of an accident in which a child suffered minor injuries.

McKeesport police have charged Siddioah L. Sands, 28, with failing to stop and render aid, driving with a suspended license, careless driving and causing an accident while not properly licensed.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 24 before Magisterial District Judge Eugene Riazzi.

Police said two girls were walking home from the store on the evening of June 7 and were attempting to cross Soles Street near Bailie Avenue when a black Ford Explorer drove by, striking one of the children.

The driver stopped to ask if the girls were OK, but left before police or paramedics arrived, a witness told police.

Police said the girl who was struck suffered cuts and bruises and did not require hospitalization.

McKeesport police located the SUV a short time later near the intersection of Irwin and Packer streets and questioned the driver, whom they identified as Sands, according to a report.
