PAYSON, Utah — Police in Payson say the driver of a truck involved in a hit and run that injured a boy walking on the sidewalk came forward.

The boy was taken to the hospital in serious condition Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the nine-year-old boy was walking on the sidewalk near 100 East and 800 South in Payson when the hit and run happened.

Witnesses said a truck came up onto the sidewalk and hit the boy, but did not stop. It continued east on the sidewalk and turned south on Canyon Road.
