CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati police say a man has been charged in connection with a hit-skip Wednesday morning.

Police say a silver Mazda SUV hit a 15-year-old boy shortly before 9:15 a.m. at the intersection of Seymour Avenue and Vine Street.

The teen had non-life threatening injuries, according to police, but was taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for treatment.

Melvin Green, 33, is charged with driving without a license and leaving the scene.

Green was in court Thursday morning where his bond was set at $2,500.

Prosecutors say Green hit the 15-year-old, stopped and checked him out before leaving the scene.
