MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The man suspected in the Coon Rapids hit-and-run that left a 9-year-old boy seriously injured is in custody.
Nathan Wade Boese, 32, of Coon Rapids, turned himself in Tuesday night, police said.
Boese was charged with criminal vehicular operation and leaving the scene of a crime for the hit-and-run crash on June 13.
Authorities say the hit-and-run happened around 7 p.m. at the intersection of 111th and Kumquat streets. The 9-year-old boy, later identified as Amir Taylor, was hit as he was riding his bike to the park.
Taylor was severely injured and taken to the hospital. He was transferred on Tuesday to the Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare to continue his rehabilitation. He is currently listed in fair condition.
“There are still a lot of unanswered questions, but today we are one step closer to knowing what really happened,” said Taylor’s mother, Ravesha Harris.
