Fresno Police look for hit and run suspect

Friday, June 14, 2013

A 17-year old is in critical condition after he was hit on his bike.

Fresno Police said the teen was riding with a friend near Barton & Balch in Southeast Fresno when a blue SUV hit the rider from behind and ran him over.

The driver quickly sped away from the scene and has not been found. But investigators are confident they'll be able to find the suspect.

"There was witnesses here too, so we got a pretty good description of the vehicle and the suspect. The other victim was not struck fortunately," said Lt. Joe Gomez, Fresno Police Department.

Police are looking for a dark blue SUV -- possibly a Chevy Avalanche. The driver had a female passenger inside at the time.
