In a post to its Facebook page, the Heber City Police Department said detectives are seeking information about this car related to the hit-and-run investigation.

Heber City Police are investigating a hit-and-run that happened Wednesday at Wasatch High School, and they're asking for help from the public to find the driver.

The victim, a student riding a bike, walked away with minor injuries.

Wednesday afternoon, Police announced that a black SUV had hit the cyclist earlier at about 2:30 p.m. The bike took “the bulk of the damage,” and the student walked away without needing medical attention, but the driver fled the scene.

No one was around to witness the accident, but the school resource officer arrived quickly at the site near the school main entrance.

Heber City Police are asking for help identifying the car in an image posted to its Facebook page. Sergeant Tammy Thacker says they’re also reviewing security footage from nearby businesses.

While detectives haven’t determined any details about the driver yet, Thacker says they’re looking into the possibility that they were another student.

Thacker says police are “very, very thankful that the child is fine and walked away without injuries” and ask the public to contact Detective Josh Weishar with information. His number is (435) 657-7913.
