Durham Police are looking for a driver who was involved in a hit-and-run.

The collision left a teenager in critical condition.

Authorities say a 13-year-old boy was riding his bike when a car hit him Sunday at the corner of Maple and Gate streets around 6 p.m.

The boy was taken to Duke University Medical Center.

Tim Crowder witnessed the accident.

"I was sitting at my mama in-law's house when I heard a thump," Crowder said. "I looked and I saw the boy go up in the air. The bike followed behind him."

Authorities are looking for an older model champagne Honda Accord with a shattered front windshield.
