No arrests had been made as of Monday after an Evansville hit-and-run accident sent a young boy to a Denver hospital.

Evansville Police Capt. Tom Laughrey said a light-colored pickup truck was traveling at “highway speed” down residential Copper Avenue just before 10 p.m. Saturday when the truck struck the boy and drove off.

Laughrey declined to release the boy's name but said he is of preteen age. He did not know the boy's condition on Monday. The boy was first taken to the Wyoming Medical Center before being flown to Denver.

There are no current suspects, but Laughrey said investigators are conducting interviews.

    Somebody knows where that pickup was coming from. I hope they're human enough to come forward.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
