GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A 14-year-old was taken to the hospital after being hit by a pickup truck on Green Bay’s east side.

The victim was struck in the intersection of Main St. and N. Baird St. at about 2 o’clock in the afternoon Wednesday. They’re expected to recover.

The truck was going south on Baird and hit the teen while turning west onto Main St. The driver didn’t stop.

Witnesses identified the pickup truck as a newer black Ford or Chevrolet with a large Mexican flag in the bed.

“We understand that this is a vague vehicle description and with Mexican Independence Day being celebrated on Saturday... there may be an abundance of trucks with flags that match the suspect vehicle,” Police Capt. Clint Beguhn acknowledged. “However, the specific truck that we are looking for may have front-end damage near the bumper, so please take that into consideration as we ask for the public’s assistance in this case.”
