LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles Police Department has released surveillance video of a hit-and-run crash in which an 11-year-old boy suffered serious injuries in the hopes of finding the driver that fled.

Around 4 p.m. Wednesday, the boy was struck in the area of 42nd Street and McKinley Avenue in South L.A. as he ran across the street trying to catch up to an ice cream truck, according to the department.

In the footage, the driver is seen stopping and getting out of the vehicle, then leaving the scene without rendering aid or identifying himself, as required by law.
