HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – Hadley Police and the Northwestern District Attorney’s office revealed new surveillance photos Friday morning of the vehicle suspected in a hit-and-run accident in October that left a 13-year-old boy seriously injured.

The 13-year-old boy is still recovering from his injuries after he was hit by a van on Route 9,
however finding the person who took off is where they need your help. New photos were shared Friday of the suspected van, a Ford Econoline. However, it doesn’t have any identifying markers other than some damage to its side and a missing mirror. Despite the photos, investigators said the fog from the October 11th incident obscured the only license plate on the back.

First Assistant District Attorney Steven Gagne told 22News, “If it was repaired, somebody else repaired it, somebody else put that piece on. Somebody absolutely knows something, no doubt about that. It’s just a matter of coming forward, whether it’s anonymously or not and doing the right thing.”

Another thing investigators released Friday was the route the van took before and after the hit and run that morning. They noted that it appeared the van did a loop over by University Drive before the incident.

What we know that happened that day:

On Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at around 7:30 a.m., a 13-year-old boy was struck by a van while crossing Route 9 at a crosswalk near the Hampshire Juvenile Court.

Police believe the vehicle involved was a white 1997-2004 Ford Econoline cargo van with an extended rear length. Investigators have found a passenger side mirror in the area of the accident and believe the vehicle continued westbound on Route 9 to the roundabout in Northampton and then headed on I-91 South.
