A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday night in connection with a hit-and-run accident that occurred Monday in Karmiel. Israel Radio reported that the man is a resident of a nearby Beduin neighborhood.

A three-year-old boy was badly injured in the accident.  Magen David Adom crews took the boy to the Rambam Hospital in Haifa by helicopter, where he was being treated.

According to reports, the car owner is the man's uncle, 30, who was also arrested for helping him repair the car for the purposes of concealing evidence from the crash.

Both suspects were due in court on Wednesday.
