Stuart said his son was struck from behind and thrown onto the hood of the car. No one stopped to help, he said. He said his son’s friend called his wife, Leigh Stuart, who rushed to the scene and found her son sitting on the side of the road near the fire station. Leigh Stuart said she drove her son to the hospital.
“We have no idea why the driver did this,” Leigh Stuart said. “We hope that someone saw what happened and that police will find the driver. We don’t want to see anything like this happen again. It’s disturbing to think that someone would just drive away like this.”
Stuart said his son was taken to the emergency room at Merrimack Valley Hospital, where he was treated for a concussion, whiplash, scrapes, bruises and strained ligaments in his right leg.
Leigh Stuart said her son’s injuries caused him to miss two days of school and that he was on crutches for about a week.
