Boy fighting for his life after hit-and-run

A 13 year old boy is fighting for his life after he was hit by a car in West Palm Beach.

Isaiah Reynolds-Blue was crossing Military Trail from Cherry Rd. west of the city when he was hit, throwing him roughly 60 feet from the point of impact.

The driver of that car fled the scene and is still at large.

Isaiah is at St. Mary's Medical Center. He suffered internal brain damage and is in a medically induced coma. His mom and dad haven't left his side.

Isaiah's great aunt Jori Hernandez says her nephew Isaiah is a sweet and a good kid. He loves basketball and the Green Bay Packers, "He has his whole life ahead of him."

That's what makes this especially hard.

"Devastated, heartbroken, sick to my stomach," says Hernandez. 

On November 4th, Isaiah was with a friend crossing Military Trail when he was hit.

Investigators say the driver fled in a light blue or gray Toyota Corolla. 

However, Jori isn't thinking about that.

"All we're thinking about is Isaiah just getting Isaiah to wake up. This could be months, maybe even years of rehabilitation and we're fine with that," says Hernandez.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Isaiah's medical need. So far more than $4,000 has been raised.
