MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities have impounded a truck in connection with the hit-and-run that left a 9-year-old boy in critical condition.

The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office said (via Twitter) that a truck was impounded Friday and is being processed. Authorities also said that that “no suspect is being sought.”

No other information was released.

Amir Kahron Taylor suffered critical injuries around 7 p.m. Wednesday, when a pickup hit him near the intersection of 111th Avenue and Kumquat Street Northwest in Coon Rapids, Minn.

Taylor is currently in critical condition at North Memorial Medical Center. On Thursday, his mother said he suffered brain injuries.

On Thursday, police said the vehicle involved in the hit and run is possibly a 2-door extended cab 1993 to 1998 Chevy Z-71 with a short box that is glossy black in color. Witnesses said the truck sustained driver’s side damage, and the side mirror was left dangling after the hit-and-run.

If you have any information on the hit-and-run, call police at 763-421-4760.
