A 13-year-old boy is recovering after he was hit by a car on Seltice Way near State Line. The victim said moments after he was hit, the driver fled the scene.
The boy's dad told KHQ's Hayley Guenthner that Saturday night around 9:00, his son went to grab a snack from the gas station about a block from their home. He said the car veered off the road and into the parking lot where his son was. A woman came to help the boy, that's when witnesses said the suspect fled. They said he was driving a white El Camino.
The boy's dad, Henry Heideck, said his son was so shaken up, he barely slept after it happened.
"He's sore," Heideck said. "He hurts. It's sickening. He told me he thought he was going to die before I got there."
The family said KCSO has located a suspect in the case. We are still waiting on confirmation from deputies on that.
