    Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who struck an 8-year-old boy and left the area without stopping.

    The Tempe Police Department says the boy was hit by a vehicle on March 2 at 1:35 p.m. near Hayden and Apache. Surveillance video shows the boy had just exited a city bus when he was struck by a vehicle.

    Hard to watch....

    This family has already suffered one incredibly tragic loss - the murder of Zion's little brother three years ago!
    :rose:

    Someone knows something - specifically the passenger in the car! Come forward and do the right thing! :please:

    Now Zion has a fractured leg and abrasions, but thankfully, he’s alive.
    It’s a much different outcome from the heartbreaking situation with her son Malachi in 2013.
    “He was 22 months when he was suffocated by my ex-husband,” she said.
    Jamie’s ex-husband Juan Campbell pleaded guilty to third-degree murder.
    Authorities say Campbell put his hands over the boy’s mouth to stop him from crying and smothered him. Jamie will never forget the pain of losing a child in such a tragic way ... but in this case?

    From here Zion’s mom is hoping police track down the driver of the car that hit him.
    [...]
    Unfortunately the security camera on the city bus didn’t pick up the license plate number, but Tempe police say there may be more footage on another bus. They’re looking into that now.
    [...]
    Tempe Police are asking for the public’s help to locate and identify the driver of the suspect vehicle, who is described as a white or Hispanic female in her twenties. It is believed a female passenger was also in the vehicle during the collision.

    Tempe police looking for driver who hit 8-year-old boy on skateboard and drove off - ABC15 Arizona
    [...]
    A Tempe boy, 8-year-old Zion Patterson, on a skateboard is violently hit by a car and thrown to the ground.

    The worst part? The vehicle appears to stop for a brief moment (notice the brake lights) but ultimately decides to continue driving. While the boy quickly gets to his feet, no one in the car pulls over to check on him.


    "If I would have done that to your child, I would have at least waited," said Zion's mom, Jamie Campbow.

    [...]

    It appears the incident happened within a neighborhood so there is not a designated crosswalk.

    Police released the video on Tuesday, March 8 asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect's vehicle.

    [...]

    "A lot of times people are scared for whatever reason: they don't have a license, they don't have insurance, maybe they have been drinking, maybe they have warrants." Tempe Sgt. Steve Carbajal said. "Who knows what the reason is, but the bottom line is it really compounds the situation and aggravates it is when you leave the scene."
