PARMA, Ohio — A Parma man turned himself in to police Wednesday in connection with a hit-ship crash that happened earlier this week and left a 9-year-old boy seriously injured.

Milton J. Rullan, 38, is charged with stopping after an accident on public roads or highways (hit-skip), a fourth-degree felony, according to police.

Rullan turned himself in after an officer made contact with him on the phone, police said.

The crash happened Tuesday in the 4700 block of Sheraton Drive around 7:15 p.m. The boy was riding a bicycle when he was hit by a 2009 Ford Escape.

After allegedly striking the boy, Rullan fled the scene, police said. Officers found the Ford Escape abandoned just after 4 a.m. on Wednesday near the 5000 block of Forestwood Drive by the ice rink.

Police said the boy's injuries were serious but non-life-threatening. His current condition is unknown.
