RICHLAND, Wash. — Police have released security camera footage from the vehicle they say hit a 14-year-old Chief Joseph Middle School student and fled the scene in late October.
According to a social media alert from the Richland Police Department, officers were dispatched to the area of George Washington Way and McMurray St around 4:40 p.m. on October 26 to report a collision.
Moments earlier, a 14-year-old boy cycled westbound on George Washington Way at the crosswalk. The silver/grey SUV pictured above was heading west on McMurray St when it turned onto George Washington Way and hit the bike on its rear tire.
Fortunately, the teenager was not injured in the accident, but his tire was destroyed and his bike partially damaged. During this time, the driver did not stop and accelerated to avoid being confronted by the police.
“A photo of the vehicle was obtained from traffic cameras and is attached below,” Richland Police said online. “The DPR is requesting assistance in identifying the vehicle and the driver.”
