Teen Struck by Hit and Run Driver

Posted: Updated:

The night before Thanksgiving, 17 year old Jake DuBose was walking home, but never made it. Around 7 PM he was struck by a pick up truck at the intersection of Avenue J and Station Street in Port Aransas.

Jake was left laying unconscious in the middle of the road. The driver never stopped. It just so happens, a woman...a complete stranger saw the whole thing and pulled Jake out of the road. Possibly saving his life. Amazingly, the teen didn't have any serious injuries, just some cuts, bruises and serious road rash. An ambulance whisked Jake away to the hospital. The driver is still out there. Whoever it is....Jake and his family want them to pay for what they did....but more importantly, they say, they want him off the road.

The witness was able to provide police a description of the truck...a blue and tan later model ford F-250 with four doors. possibly a 2001 model. If you know anything that might help police find the driver call the Port Aransas police department. The number is: 361-749-6241.
