Police in Fort Wayne say a hit-and-run driver who badly injured a 3-year-old boy while backing a van from a driveway has turned himself in.

Police say 38-year-old Michael T. Harris was arrested Monday on preliminary charges of with leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury and driving while suspended. No further information on Harris was available because the jail was closed for the holiday.

Police say Jaime Saldana was listed in serious condition after he suffered head injuries after being hit Sunday.

The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/Re2d2F ) the boy's parents immediately scooped him up and began driving him to the hospital, being met along with way by officers who escorted them there.

The van was later found a couple of miles away.
