Pittsburgh police looking for driver in hit-and-run that injured juvenile

PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh police are looking for the driver of a vehicle that hit a juvenile Tuesday morning.

An eighteen-year-old walking to school Tuesday morning was hit by a car around 7:15 a.m. while crossing Brownsville Road. That vehicle never stopped, and the entire ordeal was caught on surveillance video.

Although the vehicle he was hit by never stopped, other people did run over to help.

“People are always trying to play catch up they are trying to go around the bus they are trying to go around cars,” Clara Johnson said.

Neighbors in the area say people often drive far too fast on this road and with the number of kids and residential homes.

“There is a high school there, a school down there, and a school there. There are a lot of kids,” Johnson said.

Residents said something needs to be done to slow drivers down.

“I think a light will help a light will slow it down,” Johnson said.

That student was taken to the hospital in stable condition, and police are working to identify the driver. No arrests have been made.
