A driver who allegedly struck a 5-year-old boy at a Darwin pedestrian crossing and fled the scene has handed himself in to police.
The child suffered two broken legs and a fractured arm when allegedly struck by a car driven by the 22-year-old near a play ground on Monday afternoon.
Paramedics took him to Royal Darwin Hospital where he remained in a stable condition on Friday.
Police launched an appeal for the driver to come forward and the man handed himself in on Thursday afternoon.
Detective Senior Constable Rhys Studders said investigators received numerous tips from the public.
"Had this man not handed himself in, it really was only a matter of time before we were knocking on his door," he said.
The man was charged with one count of hit and run causing serious harm and refused bail to appear in Darwin Local Court on Friday.
