Boulder police are looking for a driver accused of hitting a 9-year-old boy who was on his bike on his way to school this morning and leaving the scene.
The fourth-grade student at Whittier International Elementary, 2008 Pine St., told police that he was hit by a car about 8:20 a.m. on 19th Street, between Walnut and Pearl streets.
The boy told officers that he was riding his bike on a sidewalk, and a young female – who was driving a dark green sedan – hit him while she was pulling out of an alley, according to police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley.
