A 14-year old boy was struck in a hit-and-run crash near the 7-11 on 535, just south of Winter Garden Village. The boy suffered severe injuries and required air transport to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition after under going multiple emergency surgeries.
A fundraiser has been started by the boys family to help raise funds for his care. The gofundme states:
The person that hit him did not stop to help. He suffered a severe brain injury and is currently undergoing surgery in critical condition. He and his whole family will have a long road ahead. I am setting this up due to an overwhelming response from the community asking how to help him and his family during this tough time. His parents will need to miss work and they also have a daughter to care for, so anything would help! We truly appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers!!
The Winter Garden Police are searching for the suspect. Anyone with information on the crash should call Winter Garden police at 407-656-3636 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
