A two-year-old child was struck by a vehicle Thursday morning in Cleveland.

A dark-colored truck struck the child on Wilson Avenue SE and then left the scene according to authorities.

Channel 3 has learned that the child was standing in the street when he was "tapped" by the truck. He reportedly has a red spot on his abdomen from the incident.

The child was transported by ambulance to a Chattanooga hospital for examination and treatment.

The child is said to be in stable condition.

Channel 3 has a crew enroute and will update this developing story.
