Authorities are looking for a driver who hit a 16-year-old boy in San Clemente last Wednesday and then fled the scene, reports KTLA.

The victim, Hunter Bogart, was riding a friend's skateboard when he fell and was immediately struck by a gold SUV with plates from Vegas. He was pinned under the car and dragged about 10 feet, but only suffered minor injuries.

The woman driving the car is described as Asian, with dark hair and in her 30s or 40s.
