Car that hit boy, 16, and his puppy on North Main in Dayton didn’t stop

Published: Wednesday, January 11, 2017 @ 9:13 PM

UPDATE @ 6:30 p.m. (Jan. 12): The 16-year-old boy was hit as he tried to retrieve his puppy, who had gotten loose as they were headed to a store, his mother said Thursday. 

Rosalind Boone said her son is on crutches and the 6-week-old puppy's hind legs were shattered. The pup was taken to the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center. 

"All the other cars stopped and my son went to get the puppy and the other car that the man was driving he sped up real fast and he hit my son and he hit the dog then he kept on going," Boone told News Center 7's James Buechele. 

"I just thank God that my son didn't get injured too, too bad," Boone said. 

"You know you hit an innocent puppy and you hit a 16-year-old kid and you didn't have no remorse you just kept going," she said, in a sort of plea to the driver. 

Dayton police are looking for that driver. 

If you saw the accident or have information about it that could help police, you are asked to call Dayton police at 333-COPS or Crime Stoppers at 222-STOP.


A 16-year-old boy hit by a car in the 2800 block of North Main Street has been taken to Grandview Medical Center. 

He suffered leg and hip injuries, according to the preliminary report from police at the scene. 

Dayton police and a fire/medic unit were dispatched about 8:38 p.m. on a report of a pedestrian strike.
