SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Scottsdale police are looking for a vehicle that hit a 7-year-old boy then took off at approximately 8 a.m. Tuesday.

According to 3TV reporter Bruce Haffner, a father and his three children, ages 10, 9 and 7, were walking across Miller Road just north of Osborn Road.

According to Scottsdale police Officer David Pubins, the pedestrians were crossing mid-block and not in a crosswalk.

Pubins said the father stopped for traffic, but his son pulled away and was hit by a red four-door vehicle, possibly a Toyota Corolla. The car came to a complete stop then fled the scene northbound on Miller Road.

No driver information was obtained.

The boy reportedly has a head injury, but he was conscious. He was transported to a local hospital with injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 480-312-5000.
