A 15-year-old Cottonwood boy is in grave condition at a local hospital, after he was struck by a hit-and-run vehicle Saturday night.

Aaron Mieger was struck while walking south on Main Street, just north of Musket Way in Cottonwood around 5:30 p.m.

He was taken from the scene to Mercy Medical Center where he is on life-support.

Officers have located the gold 1997 Toyota Camry that struck Meiger, but are still searching for the driver. The car’s registered owner was not involved in the crash, officials say.
