Police on Tuesday were looking for the driver of the vehicle that hit a 14-year-old boy Monday in Federal Way.
The boy was riding his skateboard about 5:30 p.m. in the 300 block of South 304th Place when the vehicle careened around a corner and hit the boy, police said.
“He landed on the hood and then they stopped and it threw him quite a distance,” the boy’s mother, Teri Hyatt-Oushani, told The News Tribune. “Then they peeled out. They just hit him and left.”
She said her son curled into a ball the instant he was hit, so he did not see the vehicle or the driver.
Police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said officers had no suspects in the hit-and-run.
The boy initially was taken to St. Francis Hospital before being moved to his home, where he was resting Tuesday.firstname.lastname@example.org
