Stoughton Police announced Wednesday morning that a 90-year-old Stoughton man was charged in the Dec. 8 hit-and-run on Park St. in Stoughton which sent a 15-year-old male pedestrian to the hospital.

The driver involved in the Dec. 8 hit and run on Park Street in Stoughton, which sent a teenage boy to the hospital, has been charged, the Stoughton Police announced in a release on the Department's Facebook page Wednesday morning.

Harry Minassian, 90, of 433 Lincoln St. in Stoughton, is being charged with leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury; failure to stay in marked lanes; leaving the scene of property damage; and negligent operation of a motor vehicle, according to the release.

The vehicle Minassian was operating at the time, a white 1996 Cadillac Seville, was turned over to police last week for processing.

Very sad. I had to remove my mom's access to drive. Very hard thing to do particularly given her young age, but it must be done when they are endangering lives and unfortunately, the government does not step in soon enough for most. Thank goodness the child in the case survived. Please do the right thing and intervene on your loved ones who should no longer be operating a motor vehicle. Your actions can save lives.
