15-Year-Old Boy On Bicycle Struck By SUV While Crossing Stockton Street; Driver Still Sought

STOCKTON (CBS13) — A search is on for the driver who struck a 15-year-old boy on a bicycle in Stockton, then took off from the scene. Stockton police say the incident happened Wednesday afternoon at the intersection of March Lane and Quail Lakes Drive. As seen in a video taken of the incident, an SUV turns right and appears to be unaware of several bicyclists who are crossing the street. The SUV then strikes one of the bicyclists, the 15-year-old boy. The boy is visibly limping in another video taken in the immediate aftermath of the crash. Police say the boy is expected to be OK, however. No information about the driver, other than that they were in an early 2000s-model Chevy Tahoe, has been released.
