Teen hopes to trace car accident driver

A teen-aged boy who suffered whiplash injury in a hit and run car accident is appealing for the driver who hit him to make his identity known to police.

The 14-year-old was riding his bicycle in Worcester on Sunday afternoon when it was clipped from the rear by a car, causing him to be launched forward into the air, suffering whiplash and grazes in the process.

The boy's mother commented, "He went flying into the road.

"The car that hit him had to stop because he was in the middle of the road. A female passenger wound down the window and asked if he was OK.

"[My son] said I think so' and the car just drove off.

"He is still a bit shaken up. I just want the driver to come forward."

A police spokesperson said, "We would like to hear from the male driver, or anyone who saw the driver or recognises a description of the car."

If the driver does not step forward and identify himself it is likely that any whiplash compensation claim the boy makes will have to be with the MIB, an organisation that provides compensation for the victims of car accidents caused by uninsured or untraceable drivers.

Anyone with information about the crash has been urged to contact police on 0300 333 3000.
