Police look for hit and run driver after a 13-year-old boy is knocked off of his bike

Local News

A teenager is thrown to the concrete after a hit-and-run Thursday afternoon; the incident happening shortly before four o’clock at the intersection of Liberty and 30th streets.

13-year-old Page Scheffner approached a stop sign while riding his bike.  That’s when his bike was slammed into from behind, throwing Page into the street.  Page says the driver stopped his car briefly, looked at him, then kept driving.

Page went to the hospital to be treated for some minor cuts and a gash in the back of his head.  He tells us, “I thought he was going to stop to try to help, but then he just kept driving on… I thought I just had a little scratch so I was trying to get up; then I saw my hand and it had blood all over it so I sat back down.”

Page describes the driver as a bald, middle-aged white man with a brown beard and glasses.  He was driving a two-door green pick-up truck with a cap.  

Now, the police are looking for the driver when originally, all Page wanted was “just an apology… that’s all I needed”.
