To be clear, I can't say here if the driver leaving the scene was actually intentional. With pedestrian accidents, truck drivers sometimes have no idea they hit someone. Still, that doesn't change the fact that authorities need to contact this driver and speak with them. Getting answers about what exactly happened will no doubt be crucial for getting this kid some much needed help.

Simply keeping these details in the public eye as much as possible is a prudent step toward doing just that. Most of the time, someone is able to connect the dots and come forward with important information. It could be a neighbor, a co-worker, a family member, an employer, or even the driver themselves. At the end of the day, finding out whether or not this was an honest mistake or a driver trying to avoid responsibility is going to be crucial going forward.
