KEARNS — A five-year-old boy is in extremely critical condition after he was struck by a pickup truck in a hit-and-run accident Thursday night, according to Unified police.
The accident occurred near 5023 W. Longmore Drive in Kearns, close to a shopping center, around 7:20 p.m.
Police say they are still looking for the driver, who investigators believe stopped the vehicle after hitting the boy before driving off, but are unsure if the driver was aware they hit a child.
The truck is described as light colored with a mismatched-colored door on the driver’s side, according to police.
