A 15-year-old boy from East Palo Alto is in critical condition with a head injury after he was side-swiped by a pick-up truck in a hit-and-run accident the day after Christmas on the 2300 block of Ralmar Avenue.

According to the East Palo Alto police, the boy was standing on the south side of the streetwith his sister and uncle around 12:15 p.m. on Monday. The three were examining a manual for a gas-powered moped, which they had placed on the hood of a nearby truck.

A Chevy S10 pick-up truck that was reportedly driving fast down Ralmar Avenue hit the boy and continued north on Alberni Street, leaving the boy lying incoherent on the asphalt.

Anyone who has seen the truck, which is described as white with a black, length-wise stripe and an extended cab and black rack over the bed, is asked to call officer Richard May at 650-321-1112. Witnesses said the truck appeared to be at least 10 years old and was driven by a man wearing a white T-shirt who appeared to be between 30 and 40 years old.
