THE BRONX - A Bronx cab company has admitted that one of its drivers struck a 7-year-old and then fled the scene.

The company says a part-time worker taking the place of a driver who was on vacation struck Jovanni Concepcion in front of his Marion Avenue building on Monday. Concepcion needed seven staples in his head after the accident.

The driver told the company he fled the scene because several people, including Concepcion's mother Beatrice Garzon, were banging on his car. The company says the driver was concerned about his safety and his son, whom he had in the back seat.

Super Class says the incident was an unfortunate accident, and that they are fully cooperating with police.
