Cambridge teen seriously injured in hit and run
A Cambridge teen was seriously injured when he was involved in a hit and run over the Alewife Brook Parkway.
16-year-old Ben Saunders was on his way home from a baseball game on Wednesday night when a dark four-door sedan struck him as he crossed over the Parkway in Cambridge, then took off, police told WHDH.
Massachusetts State Police Trooper Thomas Murphy said witnesses reported seeing the sedan leave the area with significant front-end damage as a result of the collision, according to the Cambridge Chronicle.
Saunders, a student at Cambridge Rindge and Latin, is currently recovering from a punctured lung, broken ribs and a broken arm at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. His family is asking whoever is responsible to come forward.
“We’re all in shock – his friends and his family and his siblings. We’re all shaken up by this,” Mercado said. “Whoever hit him needs to come out and face the facts that you don’t hit a kid and keep on driving.”
Police are asking the public to reach out if they have any information regarding the incident.
