HERRIMAN, Utah (KUTV) — A 16-year-old student of Mountain Ridge High School in Herriman is recovering after being hit by a hit-and-run driver while walking to school on Wednesday morning.
The incident occurred at around 7:15 a.m.
just one block away from the school.
The driver who hit the teenager did not stick around to help.
The victim’s mother, Amelia Sorensen, received a text message from her son telling her he had been hit by a car but was okay.
She later found out that her son’s shoulder was fractured and the left side of his body was sore.
Sorensen is calling for more lighting and a crosswalk light to be installed in the area where the accident occurred.
She also went door to door to gather videos of the hit-and-run to help the police find the driver.
Police are currently looking for any suspects related to the incident and are asking for information from the public.
