Driver who hit tot facing felonies
Katlynn Hollisworth, 24, was arrested for driving while intoxicating after her car jumped the curb and hit Cooper Rogers, 3, while he was walking down the sidewalk with his mom. NANCY BEAN FOSTER
According to Rogers' sister, Danielle Levitz, Rogers had just picked up Cooper, 3, from day care on School Street. The two were walking down the sidewalk when a vehicle jumped the curb and sent the boy hurtling through the air.
The driver of the vehicle, Katlynn Hollinsworth, 24, continued driving down the sidewalk briefly before stopping, according to Capt. Ian Donovan of the Hillsborough Police Department. She was arrested at the scene and charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and first-degree assault, both felonies.
Donovan said officers on the scene suspected that Hollinsworth was intoxicated by drugs, not alcohol.
Levitz was working at the elementary school up the street from the day care when she got the call her nephew had been injured. She ran down the street in a panic and saw Cooper on the ground, a sneaker knocked off his foot by the impact.
Cooper was taken to Concord Hospital, and then to Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Levitz said the boy is recovering steadily and was feeling well enough to play with his iPad Thursday.
Levitz, who was at Hollinsworth's arraignment with other family members, said she hopes people realize that driving while intoxicated has serious repercussions. She said her family wants Hollinsworth to learn that lesson as well.
The Hillsboro Moose lodge has started a fund for the Rogers family to help with medical and travel expenses. Donations to the Cooper Rogers Fund can be sent to Hillsboro Moose Lodge 1091, PO Box 333, Hillsboro, NH 03244
