11-year-old fell off back of vehicle in Caroline County

LAKE CAROLINE, VA (WWBT) - We're learning new information about the child found badly injured in the middle of the road in Caroline County yesterday.

At first, this appeared to be a hit and run...but late last night, state police offered a new twist.

They say the 11-year-old was hurt when she fell off the back of an SUV.

She was airlifted to VCU Medical Center, where she remains in serious condition.

Police will not file charges against the driver -- because that person didn't even know the child was on the back of the vehicle.
