ATHOL, Idaho - “He's 16 years old and his life was almost cut short by your action."
Stephanie Pollitt wants justice.
“He doesn't know what to think now,” Pollitt said, “he doesn't want to leave the house, he doesn't want to do anything, he is scared."
After her son, Alex Swartz, was hit on his bike by what police describe was a General Motors type pickup truck.
The crash happened not too far from the Super One Foods on Highway 54 in Athol.
“That's not right,” Pollitt said.
According to the Idaho State Police, the truck left the scene after the crash.
Troopers say the truck hit Alex with the passenger side mirror, breaking out the glass portion, which troopers were able to find.
His mother says, thankfully, his injuries were a broken arm and some bruising.
“The bone was broken in four different pieces so they to remove one piece of that because that could not be re-attached,” Pollitt said, “and they were able to take a steel plate and eight screws and screw the rest of it back together."
Pollitt has a message for the person who hit her son.
“I just ask if you felt that way, if someone had done this to you and you felt that way,” Pollitt said, “what would you want that person to do.”
“You would want them to come forward and be accountable and be responsible for what they've done."
Pollitt says people need to be on the lookout for a white truck.
