Pleasanton family looking for answers after teen injured in hit-and-run

Bay Area

PLEASANTON (KRON) — An East Bay family is looking for answers after their son was hit by a driver who took off.

The teen has stitches on his lips, chipped teeth and other cuts and bruises.

The parents of 13-year-old Alex Borsody say the driver of this minivan struck their son and took off.

“I just think that’s what really gets me the most is that she didn’t even stop,” said Mickey Borsody.

Borsody says this happened on Friday when his son Alex was leaving Harvest Park Middle School in Pleasanton.

The 8th grader was getting picked up by his mom on Greenwood Road near Valley Avenue when he was hit.

“I think we’re very lucky he didn’t get killed or worse,” the father said.

Dash cam video from the family’s car captured the accused driver passing by in their silver minivan. Borsody says the woman actually picked up a student just moments after Alex was struck.

There were witnesses but no one got the license plate number.

The family has tried using still images from the video but a glare seems to block out the plates.

The Borsody’s are just asking for the person responsible to come forward.

“If they don’t want to come forward directly [and] that they go through an attorney or however — just you know, own up to the fact that that was a mistake and you know you’re sorry about it,” Borsody said.
