Updated Sunday: The driver from the accident has stepped forwarded and contacted the family, according to the Altadenablog.
Original: California Highway Patrol officials have no vehicle description for a hit and run involving a teenage boy near the intersection of New York Drive and Hill Avenue that happened Tuesday, according to Sgt. Marcy Rangel of the California Highway Patrol
The Pasadena Star-News reported Friday that a 13-year-old boy was hit by a vehicle making a right turn while he was in a crosswalk and broke his pelvis at that location. According to the story, the driver stopped and asked him if he was OK, and the boy told her he was. She then drove off, leaving the boy to walk home with his injury.
According to Rangel, state hit and run laws require that the driver calls the police and exchange contact information with the victim following a traffic accident. Even if a driver stops and talks with the victim of the accident, criminal hit and run charges can be filed if those things do not happen, Rangel said.
The case is still open and assigned to an officer because the driver has not been found, she said.
However, Rangel added that CHP logs show that there is no vehicle or driver description for the accident at this time. She said that the report does not list a suspect or any physical evidence.
That squares with the account in the Star-News: The boy's parents told the paper's reporter that the motorist was driving an SUV and identified herself as "Christie" or "Crystal," but had no further vehicle or driver information beyond that.
The parents are asking for the public's help in identifying the driver: contact information for them can be found in the Star-News story.
