“The initial on-scene investigation indicates that the juvenile was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street in the crosswalk,” officials said in the statement. The driver then fled the scene in their vehicle.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the boy was in critical but stable condition, police said in a press release.

Police say they are interested in any information the public has on a sedan seen passing through the area near the time of the crash, as well as a dark-colored SUV that passed through a short time earlier.
