Santa Rosa police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck an 11-year-old boy riding his bicycle Wednesday afternoon.

The driver was westbound on West Third Street near Harvest Lane at 2:49 p.m. when his car clipped the back of the boy’s bicycle as he was heading south at a crosswalk, Sgt. Ryan Corcoran said.

The driver, who police said appeared to be a man in his 20s, stopped his white Ford Mustang to quickly check on the boy, but then left, Corcoran said.

The boy, who suffered minor injuries, was taken to a hospital and then released, Corcoran said. “This could have been far worse if he wasn’t wearing a helmet,” he said.

Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to call officers at 543-3636.
