A 7-year-old boy suffered a bump on his head Thursday after the outside mirror of a vehicle driven by an unknown motorist struck him on Milan Avenue.

Sgt. Kenneth Stiert said the boy's mother took him to the doctor. Other than the bump on his head, the boy was fine, Stiert said.

According to a Norwalk Police report, a 7-year-old boy was crossing the street on Milan Avenue in front of Norwalk Catholic School when the unknown driver of a vehicle passed through the crosswalk headed south. The child's head was struck by the outside mirror of the vehicle. The driver left the scene after he made contact with the pedestrian. No driver information was presented.

Stiert said information will be presented to the Norwalk Law Director's Office for the consideration of charges.

If anyone was a witness to this incident and would have knowledge of the van description, make or model and any information concerning the driver, please call the Norwalk Police Department at (419) 663-6780.

Glad he is ok! But why in the world is a seven year old crossing that busy road by himself?

Why does St Paul not have a crossing guard there? I understand it is a designated cross walk, but kids should have someone there before and after school to help ensure their safety.

Good question, the city has crossing guards at all the public school intersections. The kids that cross at Milan Ave do not all go to St. Paul's. So it really should not be just a St. Paul problem.

they use to have a crossing guard at that intersection a very good friend of mine was the crosser and the kid did not get a visual of the driver? it said the driver had contact with the victim? what does that mean exactly? his car came into contact with his head? or the driver actually got out and checked to see if the kid was ok?? how can we help find this hit and run driver if we have no vehicle description... we have no idea if its a man? or woman? or a teenager? or an elderly person? car? truck? come on now...
