Teen Killed & Two Others Injured By Hit-and-Run Driver
Three teens were walking down Wise Road roughly around 9:30 Tuesday evening, which is just northwest of Greenville when a car hit all three of them and kept on driving leaving the scene of the accident.
The driver hit and killed a 13-year-old boy and injured the other two teens. The two teens were sent to the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital to get checked out. It looks like those two boys only suffered minor injuries.
There is no word on why the boys were walking down the dirt road or why the driver left the scene but the Michigan State Police need your help in finding that driver.
There was construction being done on the road in the area where the driver hit the teenagers but no word if somehow that was a factor in the accident. That still doesn't explain why the driver did not stop.
