A local family is searching for the driver who hit a 14-year-old boy on his way to school - and left him in the street in Paradise Hills.

 

    Around 6:30 Monday morning on Rancho Hills Drive, Devin Wilson says he got a walk signal and was crossing at an intersection, when an older model white car hit him from behind.
    In pain, in shock and on the ground, he looked up and saw an Asian woman in her 20s behind the wheel.

"She stared at me for about 5 to 10 seconds. She looked like she was going to say something and then looked forward and drove off," said Wilson, a freshman at Mission Bay High.

    Soon after, two Good Samaritans did stop to help.

Wilson suffered bone and muscle bruises in his leg, along with scrapes scattered across his body. His family peppered the area with flyers in hopes of getting tips for police.

"For someone to do this to a child and think it's okay, then go on with her day ... It was wrong and it has to be stopped," said Wilson's grandmoter, Cookie Panza.
