The 12-year-old boy pictured below told police he was struck by a gray or blue car with a female driver in the parking lot of Walgreens at Plain and Chelmsford streets tonight.
Fortunately, the boy did not appear to have a serious injury.
He called police about 10 p.m., but told officers he was struck about an hour earlier by a woman who didn’t stop. He then went to his friends house before realizing his leg was really hurt and calling police.
Officers searched the area for the offending motor vehicle, but the boy was struck an hour before he called. Officers didn’t find anything.
It’s pretty sad when a 12-year-old gets hit by a car and no one even stops to see if he’s okay.
In other news, there was also a two-car crash that forced police to briefly close Nesmith Street, at Rogers Street, tonight about 10:30 p.m., but there were no serious injuries reported. It sounded like it caused quite a mess, though.
