A dark, 15-passenger van that may still be missing a left, outside mirror is the subject of a police search for the driver whose vehicle hit a Wake Forest High School student and left the scene.
The accident happened about 7 a.m. Monday while the student was crossing the 400 block of Stadium Drive, police said in a request for help from the public.
The mirror’s impact broke the 14-year-old boy’s right collar bone, and several bones in his right foot were broken, officers said.
Based on the mirror that broke off, police said they believe the van is a Chevrolet Express model manufactured between 2003 and 2012.
They said the van stopped briefly after the accident, then fled.
Investigators asked that anyone with information that might help them call the Police Department Tip Line at 919-435-9610. All calls are confidential.
