BROCKTON, Mass. — The driver wanted i a hit-and-run that injured a 13-year-old boy has been arrested, according to Brockton police.

Jansky was born in Quincy, but has a Las Vegas address.
He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury and operating with a suspended license.

The search continues for the driver who was behind the wheel of a car that crashed into a 13-year-old boy in Brockton and drove away.
The victim of that crash is still in the hospital and while police have recovered the car, the driver has not been found.
Surveillance video shows the white Kia speeding away seconds after hitting the boy.
"I was in the house and I heard what I thought was two cars hitting,” Michael Lanoue, a neighbor, said.
Lanoue said he ran to the door and saw Elias Lebon on the ground. Lebon's friend Antonio was with him.
"He hit the window and I heard the window crack,” Antonio said.
Antonio says this car came flying out of nowhere.
"He looked both ways and he didn't see no car, and I didn't see no car, and he was crossing and the car just came straight at him,” he said.
Elias was thrown several feet into the air and several people ran to help.
"His leg was completely shattered, injuries to head. His face completely lacerated,” one woman said.
The car that hit Elias never stopped.
At about 2:30 p.m., Justin Smith drove past the accident and saw that car outside his apartment about a mile and a half away.
"I noticed a white car with heavy damage to the windshield. It seemed out of place,” Smith said.
His fiancee called 911 and the Kia was towed to a lot where damage to the windshield and hood were clearly visible.
The car had Michigan license plates and was rented from Logan Airport, according to the Boston Globe.
It’s unclear who was behind the wheel. The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office was dusting the vehicle for fingerprints.
