Police Seek Hit & Run Driver Who Hit Boy On Bicycle

NORTH MIAMI BEACH (CBS4)- Police in North Miami Beach are looking for a driver who crashed into a 12-year-old boy on a bicycle before taking off.

According to police, the accident happened around 4:45 p.m. Friday in front of a Tires R Us store near the 1500 block of NE 163rd Street.

An employee, Oscar Boveda, witnessed the crash and said a red mustang plowed into the boy.

Boveda said the boy flew in the air and landed dazed and injured in the street.

Boveda said he wants the driver to come forward.

“I hope he turns himself in,” he said. “Doing a hit and run isn’t really the way to go. It makes him look even worse doing that.”

The boy was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital.

Anyone with information regarding the hit and run driver is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    I am hearing more and more of these horrible accidents everyday and it is so sad that someone could hit anyone or anything and run.

    Our streets are getting more and more scarey everyday.

    i really dislike 163rd street; however, a bicycle should NOT be riding that street. hit and run is neither morally nor legally proper. i hope the bike rider learns from this. as far as family saying it’s good for the driver to turn hi/herself in the family should turn themselves in for not taeching the bike rider rules of the road. all the family wants is someone to take to court for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
