A Prescott man has been arrested in connection with a hit and run accident with a young bicyclist Saturday in Chino Valley. Officers responded to a call at around 6:48 p.m. of a bicyclist lying in a ditch in the 500-block of West Center Street. Officers determined a vehicle had struck the 16-year-old Chino Valley teen. The boy was flown to Phoenix Children’s Hospital where he is in stable condition. Detectives determined the vehicle was a 2012-13 model GMC or Chevy pickup.
