Gloucester Teen Seriously Injured In Hit-And-Run Pedestrian Accident

Posted on Oct 29, 2011
Virginia State Police are searching for a driver who struck and injured a Gloucester schoolboy before fleeing from the scene of the pedestrian collision.

According to local news sources, a 13-year-old boy had missed his school bus early on Monday morning. He then crossed Route 14 at the intersection of Rangtang Road to board the bus as it was returning in the other direction. When he fell while running across the busy Gloucester road, a passing vehicle that did not stop to call for help or offer medical assistance struck him.

The teen was flown by medical helicopter to Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters where he was treated for a broken femur as well as several other non-life-threatening injuries. His leg required surgery and he will need physical therapy in the coming days and weeks to help him walk again. He remains in the hospital and has had a steel rod implanted into his injured leg.

Virginia State Police are asking that anyone who has information regarding the Gloucester hit-and-run pedestrian accident call the police immediately to assist with the case.

The Virginia pedestrian accident attorneys at Chandler Law Group send their best wishes for a quick recovery to the Gloucester teen.
