The man accused in the hit-and-run crash that injured a child had his case continued in court.
Fred Willard Langford, of Catawba, was set to appear in Superior Court on an administrative hearing last week, and his case was continued to Oct. 4.
Langford was indicted June 14 on charges of felony hit and run, driving while license revoked, expired registration and reckless driving.
He allegedly rear-ended a Kia in May at the intersection of Emmanuel Church and Travis roads in Conover and left the scene. Langford had a permanently revoked license at the time of the crash.
A 2-year-old, who was riding in the Kia at the time of the incident, was critically injured.
Langford turned himself into police days after the crash.
