AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

A young boy in Summit County is the victim of a hit and run and police are  searching for that driver.

11-year-old Dawayne Grant is at Akron Children's Hospital in very serious condition. His family says he had surgery Thursday after being struck by that hit and run driver.

Akron police say the hit and run happened just after 7 a.m. Wednesday on South Arlington Street between Baird and 7th Avenue.

Dawayne was crossing the street to catch a city bus for school when a vehicle, possibly a red pickup truck, hit him.

His family says his injuries include a broken leg.

Police also say Dawayne's book bag is missing and they're asking anyone with information about the accident to call them.
