WASHINGTON – Police in Prince William County are looking for a van that was involved in a hit and run crash that sent a 5-year-old boy to the hospital.

Police say the boy was hit in the 8200 block of Rainwater Circle in Manassas Tuesday evening. His mother had just removed the boy from the car when he saw another family member across the street.

As the boy ran into the street, he was hit by a white Ford 350 van, which did not stop.
