Police are searching for a driver who struck a 4-year-old boy Wednesday night in Highland Park, then sped away.

Family members say the 4-year-old ran into the street about 8 p.m. on South Avenue 54 and South Terrace 52 when he was hit by the car. The driver stopped briefly, but then kept going, witnesses told KTLA News.

The child suffered serious injuries and was taken to County-USC Medical Center.

"I was looking at the guy like, 'Is he gonna stop?' and he just kept going," the boy's uncle, Julian Ramirez said.

The driver is described as a man wearing a baseball cap, driving a 1999 or 2000 white Ford F150 with a camper shell and pink taillights.
