BEVERLY – An 11-year-old girl received minor injuries when a car pulling out of the driveway at 88 High St. struck her early Wednesday morning, Sept. 28.
The driver was arrested at the scene for driving without a license and failure to use care while starting or stopping and will be arraigned at Ipswich District Court in Newburyport Wednesday afternoon.
Police arrested Wanderson Dasilva-Neto, 35, of 88 High St., who presented police with a Brazilian identification and had no Massachusetts license.
Police are withholding the victim’s name because she is a minor.
The girl was riding her bike to the Ipswich Middle School and was hit about 7 a.m. She wasn’t wearing a helmet and received cuts, bruises and, possibly, a broken nose, said Ipswich Police Chief Paul Nikas.
“She’s shaken up and scared,” Nikas said.
Police are conducting a further investigating into Dasilva-Neto’s residency status.
“He’s never had a Massachusetts license,” said Nikas.
