On Monday February 10, 2014 around 6:30pm, a 15 year old boy was pedaling his bicycle across the intersection of Washington Avenue with 3rd Street. The unidentified driver of what is thought possibly to be a light colored Subaru wagon was driving through the intersection and struck the teen. The victim fell from his bicycle and the suspect vehicle drove over the top of him. The suspect vehicle continued to drive away, traveling east on Washington Avenue. Another motorist stopped to render assistance to the boy, who was bleeding but still conscious. The motorist rendered aid to the boy. He first drove the boy and his bicycle to the teen’s home and then transported him to the hospital where the police were notified. The boy was transported to the Renown Medical Center in Reno for treatment of his injuries.
The suspect driver is believed to be a white male of undetermined age. Anyone who may have information related to this matter is encouraged to call the South Lake Tahoe Police Department, or the South Lake Tahoe Secret Witness Tip Line at 530-541-6800.
