COLUMBIA — A 69-year-old man contacted the Columbia Police Department last week and said he was the driver of the Nissan Altima that hit an 11-year-old boy riding his bike.

He contacted the police Sept. 10, a day after the incident, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.

The boy was hit by a vehicle at West Worley Street and Park de Ville Drive at 3:17 p.m Thursday. Witnesses reported that a charcoal-colored Nissan Altima hit the boy, who was riding his bicycle in a cross-walk, then drove away, the release said.

Police met the man at the scene of the accident and interviewed him about the details. Police said that according to all accounts the car was traveling on Worley and turned south onto Park de Ville.

Police are still investigating the accident.
