Teen injured in hit-and-run near Turlock

The California Highway Patrol on Tuesday was investigating a hit-and-run incident several miles west of Turlock, where a 17-year-old boy was hit by a tan pickup that left the scene. The injured boy was taken by air ambulance to a local hospital. CHP spokesman officer Eric Parsons said the boy suffered minor to moderate injuries.
