Police said Sunday that a motorist followed a hit-and-run driver after he struck a 13-year-old Seaside Park boy who was riding his bicycle on Ocean Terrace in Seaside Heights.

The incident occurred at about 8:10 p.m. Saturday at the corner of Blaine Avenue and Ocean Terrace, said Detective Steve Korman. Seaside Heights Police Ptl. Tim Smith found the Seaside Park boy there, after he sustained a minor injury that was treated at the scene.

Meanwhile, the suspect vehicle left the area prior to officers’ arrival and was being followed by a concerned citizen, who was on the line with police dispatchers, advising them of the direction of travel of the vehicle.
