Authorities continue searching for a vehicle involved in a Dec. 17 hit and run that injured a 15-year-old East Chapel Hill High student.

Chapel Hill Police report a bicyclist was struck by a vehicle in the area of Homestead Road near Aquatic Drive. The department released details on a vehicle connected to its on­go­ing investigation: a blue 2006-2011 model Chevrolet HHR. The student was riding home from the town’s skate park and suffered a broken leg and major head injuries.
