Lower Merion hit-and-run leaves 13yo critical

Just received via cellphone:

Lower Merion Police looking for vehicle involved in a hit and run accident at Morris Rd and New Gulph Rd. Bryn Mawr
On Wednesday July 15, at approximately 12:13 PM, a crash involving a car and a bicyclist occurred on New Gulph Road just west of Morris Avenue in Bryn Mawr. The vehicle and the bicyclist were both traveling westbound at the time of the collision.
The bicyclist, a 13 year old boy from Bryn Mawr, was flown to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with a head injury, and he arrived in critical condition. His identity is being withheld due to his age. The driver of the car left the scene of the crash without being identified.
The driver of the vehicle was described by witnesses as a white female in her thirties or forties. The vehicle was described as a light colored station wagon, possibly a gold or tan Volvo. It sustained damage to the passenger side of the front windshield. It was last seen traveling northbound on Morris Avenue from the area of the crash. The incident is currently being investigated by the Lower Merion Police Traffic Safety Unit. Any one with any information regarding this crash is urged to call the Lower Merion Police Department at 610-649-1000 immediately.

Do the right thing, middle-aged rich lady, and turn yourself in. I can't imagine you'd be DUI that early in the day, could you?

It could be a DUI. You never know. I hope the child is o.k. How many times does this have to happen until people wake up?

I hope it's before I have to read one in which the driver description is, "30-40 yo Russian male with acne and pronounced lisp as he yelled, 'Driver, OUT"
