The boy was riding his skateboard about 5:30 p.m. in the 300 block of S 304th Place when the vehicle careened around a corner and hit the boy.
“He landed on the hood and then they stopped and it threw him quite a distance,” said the boy’s mom, Teri Hyatt-Oushani. “Then they peeled out. They just hit him and left.”
She said her son curled into a ball the instant he was hit, so he did not see the vehicle or the driver.
Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said there are no suspects.
The boy was initially taken to St. Francis Hospital but is now resting at home.
