EL MONTE, Calif. (KTLA) -- A 12-year-old boy was recovering at a hospital in stable condition Monday after being thrown out of his family car during a hit-and-run crash in El Monte over the weekend, authorities said.
The child, identified by family members as Victor Magaña, was critically injured when a Toyota Sienna and a Chevy Suburban collided about 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Garvey and Lexington avenues, the El Monte Police Department said.
Surveillance video from a nearby business shows one car hitting another that then spins out of control before apparently hitting a curb.
The driver of the Chevy got out of the car and ran away, police said. No description was available and police were still searching for the person Monday.
The crash also injured another person who suffered less serious injuries, authorities said.
