The family of a five-year-old boy injured in a hit and run in Victoria have urged the driver to come forward, saying they don’t bear them ill will.

Angus, whose surname was not provided, was struck by a car while crossing Mundy Street in Geelong with another eight-year-old boy at 3.30pm on Friday. 

The car initially stopped and the female driver got out for a short time, only to get back in and drive off down Yarra Street, police say.

Angus was hospitalised with non-life-threatening injuries.

In a statement on Saturday, the boy’s family said their main concern was for their own health and welfare during what had been a challenging time.

‘Whilst this is a traumatic event, we don’t have ill will toward the driver, however we urge them to come forward for their own peace of mind as much as anything,’ the family said.

‘If anyone has information or knows this person, we would also appreciate you coming forward.’

Police said witnesses to the incident or anyone with dashcam footage should contact Crime Stoppers.
