LEOMINSTER, Mass. (AP) - Leominster police are searching for the driver of car who not only struck a teenage bicyclist, but took off and tossed the damaged bike over a fence, down an embankment and into a river.

Sixteen-year-old Joshua Carillo’s mother says both her son’s legs were broken and he even had tread marks on his legs after he was struck at about 9 p.m. Monday.

Kendra Brown pleaded with the driver to come forward.

Police say Carillo was riding with his cousin when a silver or gray car taking a turn struck the teen.

The driver then allegedly sped off, with the bike still lodged under the car.

He then stopped down the street, dislodged the bike and disposed of it in the Nashua River.
