Philadelphia police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who they say put two teens in the hospital, according to an NBC report.
On Friday night, police say “15-year-old boy was riding his bike eastbound on the 200 block of Tomlinson Road in Northeast Philadelphia along the north curb of the westbound lane. Investigators say a minivan traveling westbound hit the bike then swerved into the eastbound lane, striking 15-year-old Matt Coutts of West Pottsgrove while he was riding his skateboard,” according to the report.
Coutts is the son of Edward Coutts, a Fort Washington Fire Company firefighter. His family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the minivan driver.
Coutts, who is a freshman at Upper Moreland High School, suffered road rash, multiple fractures to his arms, legs, and shoulder as well as swelling on the brain. He underwent surgeries at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on Monday.
