Seven Year Old Boy Is Victim of a Hit and Run

By Renee Nordstrand on September 11, 2009

A seven year old Ventura boy was hit by a car while riding his bicycle on Wednesday night, the Ventura County Star reports.  As he crossed an intersection around 8 p.m., a blue Volkswagen Beetle hit him, knocking the child to the ground.

The boy, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered serious internal injuries and is being treated at the Ventura County Medical Center.  Police are currently searching for the middle-aged male and female motorists who were driving the car.

My thoughts are with this young boy and his family as he recovers.  I hope that with the help of law enforcement and citizen involvement, the motorists who caused this accident can be found and held responsible for their conduct.
