According to police, the teen was crossing the street at 260 North Redwood Road on July 21 when a man in a white Chevy Venture minivan failed to stop and hit the teen.

After the incident, the man in the minivan got out of the vehicle and began yelling at the injured teen. The driver then returned to his van and fled the scene.

Because the minivan did not have a license plate, police were unable to identify it by using another vehicle's dashcam video. Police say the van may have sustained front-end damage after hitting the teen.
