32-year-old Edgar Diaz is being held on $7,500 bail after running through a stop sign and hitting a young toddler with his pickup truck. The young toddler suffered a broken leg from the accident on the corner of Massasoit Street. The child’s mother, Caren Ventura, was at the scene of the accident.
Diaz fled the scene on foot but was restrained by a group of women before police arrived. The street is known to have a speeding issue, and police say there have been several accidents on the street since January 2017, three of which resulted in injuries.
