(KSL News) Police are searching for the driver who hit a 15-year-old boy in Springville.
Witnesses told police Josh Evans had been riding a bike and appeared ready to cross SR-51 Sunday night. They say that's when a red car hit the front of the bike.
The impact threw Evans 10 to 15 feet through the air, and he landed on the side of the road. He had to be flown to the hospital.
Police say the driver never stopped. They say he may have been driving a red Pontiac Firebird.
Family Friend Mike Walker told reporters, "Josh was riding a bike he had just gotten two days ago. He likes to do active things. It's just a shock to have something like this happen."
Anyone with information is asked to call Springville police.
