LINCOLN–(KFOR June 12)–Police need your help finding a vehicle involved in a hit and run, where a boy on bike was hit by a pickup truck in southeast Lincoln last month.
LPD has released video taken from another driver who saw the accident May 17 at 56th and Highway 2.
According to police, witnesses saw the bicyclist riding across the street when the light changed to green. The boy was hit by the pickup truck, causing the boy to fall off his bike, but the driver continued with him under the truck.
Witnesses heard the boy yelling for the driver to stop. Police said the driver backed up, then proceeded to drive forward again in an attempt to escape. The pickup dragged the boy about 25 feet before the truck stopped.
Eventually, the pickup stopped and the boy was able to climb from underneath the truck. The truck then headed east on Highway 2.
The pickup is described as a gold GMC Sierra with an extended cab, a dark tint on the front windshield, and Kansas plates. The driver is described as a white man, in his 50’s, with a beard.
