Another Hit-and-Run Seriously Injures Kennewick Boy

Police are searching for the vehicle that struck a teenager last night in south Kennewick.

Sergeant Ken Lattin of the Kenenwick Police Department said the boy was apparently walking his bike across Highway 395 to 27th near Quillan Street when he was struck by a vehicle.

Initially, the boy’s mother, Jamey Crouch, rushed him to Kennewick General Hospital after he had told her he crashed his bike. ┬áThe boy was suffering from significant arm and shoulder injuries, and according to police, did not recognize his mother or know where he was.

The ER notified Kennewick police that the injuries seemed consistent with an automobile-related accident. The subsequent investigation by police suggested the boy was struck by a small, red vehicle, possibly a Toyota Prius, with three female occupants.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police immediately via Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers at 509-586-TIPS (8477). Cash rewards can be available for people whose information directly leads to apprehension of a suspect.

This accident comes just three days after a skateboarder in Richland was struck by a woman driving a Mercedes who offered the victim money and a ride, but then left the scene of the accident. That victim was later treated at an area hospital for significant injuries.
