A 16-year-old boy was killed Tuesday night after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Schertz northeast of San Antonio.
KENS 5 reports the fatal accident occurred near the intersection of FM 1103 and Interstate 35 just before 10 pm. The victim is believed to have been crossing the road when the crash occurred.
The driver who struck the teenager fled the scene, and the victim was found in the road by another driver. Police arrived to find the teen laying in the road and attempted lifesaving measures, but the boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police are asking anyone with information on the crash or the driver’s identity to call the Schertz Police Department at (210) 619-1200. They are also hoping cameras from nearby businesses may have caught the hit-and-run on video.
