Brockton hit-and-run suspect held on high bail

A man has been held on high bail after a 13-year-old boy was hit by a car in Brockton on Wednesday. 

Police arrested Christopher Jansky, of Quincy, Wednesday night in Abington. He appeared in court Thursday morning and was held on $750,000 cash bail. 

The boy was struck by a car while riding his bike on Cross Street. Witnesses told 7News the boy was crossing the street when the car hit him. He was rushed to Children’s Hospital in serious condition. 

"He was going out with his grandma, because his grandma was talking to him, and then the car hit him,"  said Antonio Santiago. "We didn’t see the car coming, though."

Investigators were seen dusting a white car for prints at a tow yard on Main Street in Brockton later on Wednesday. The car matches the description of the car that struck the boy.

The child has a broken leg, and head and arm injuries. He is still in the hospital. 

According to investigators, he traveled 57 feet after he was hit. 

According to the assistant District Attorney, Jansky left the car he was driving at his girlfriend’s mother’s house and then went to his own mother’s house to pack his bags and leave for Las Vegas. 

Jansky will face charges for leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury and driving with a suspended license.
