WILDWOOD - Police are searching for the driver of a vehicle that hit a 16-year-old boy on Rio Grande Avenue Saturday morning.
Police were called to the 200 block of west Rio Grande Avenue at about 3 a.m. There, they found the victim "had been struck by a vehicle that left the scene without stopping, leaving the victim unconscious and suffering from a serious head injury."
The victim has been struck by the passenger side, side-view mirror, and the force of the impact caused the casing to break off.
The gray plastic casing was found in the road by police.
Witnesses were only able to describe the vehicle as a four-door car, dark gray in color. No other identifiers including the license plate were available.
Police hope the mirror casing will help them find the car and its driver.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective John Elwell at (609) 522-0222 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
