Police believe an Isuzu N series truck could be the vehicle involved in the alleged hit-and-run that left a 14-year-old boy seriously injured at North Richmond.
Inquiries into the incident have revealed the vehicle is possibly a 2016 to 2018 model, police said in a statement today (Thursday).
“Officers from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit are conducting further inquiries and believe the vehicle is an Isuzu N series truck, possibly a 2016 to 2018 model, similar to the one pictured,” police stated.
“The truck would be missing its left-hand side mirror glass and casing.”
The boy was walking west along Bells Line of Road about 9.15pm on Monday, November 5, when he was hit by a vehicle about 200 metres west of Yarramundi Lane, police stated.
”The boy was thrown to the southern side of the road by the impact; it’s believed he walked a short distance before collapsing,” the statement said.
“The vehicle did not stop after the collision.”
A passing motorist found the injured boy and notified police, and local officers attended and found the boy suffering multiple fractures and head injuries.
He was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being airlifted to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a serious but stable condition.
A crime scene was established and forensically examined.
Police are appealing for any witnesses, or anyone with dash cam footage or other information that may assist the investigation, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
