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.
