A 4-year-old boy from Raleigh was listed in fair condition after receiving transport to WakeMed for the personal injuries he suffered in a hit-and-run collision at an apartment complex near South Saunders Street, according to authorities.
According to police spokesman Jim Sughrue, Angel Gabriel Rojas was walking with his mother and three siblings around 6:30 p.m. on February 28 when the accident took place.
Sughrue said a vehicle described as a minivan stopped to allow the family to cross Wexford Avenue, but Angle somehow got separated from the group. After the rest of the family crossed, the van began pulling forward when the boy ran in front of the van and was reportedly struck by the front bumper.
Sughrue said the van continued moving forward, but it doesn’t appear the boy was struck by any of the tires. The van then left the scene.
