TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department is looking for a white sedan that may have been involved in a hit-and-run accident in which an 8-year-old boy was seriously injured on Thursday.

According to a news release from the Sheriff, the boy was wearing a helmet and with an adult when he was struck by a car at North Shannon and West Curtis roads. The boy was in a crosswalk with HAWK lights activated, according to the release.

The suspect driver may have been in a white sedan, but no other details are available. Sheriff's detectives say they are following up on several leads.

The boy is in serious condition at the University of Arizona Medical Center trauma center, according to NWFD Capt. Adam Goldberg.

The intersection was temporarily closed as the Sheriff's Department investigated. The road reopened around 9 p.m.
