TERRIFYING details have emerged about the horror injuries suffered by a 12-year-old boy who was presumably left over last weekend to die in a hit-and-run accident.
Jacob Martinez was killed and his close friend, Christina Bird, 11, was left in critical condition after a driver allegedly crashed into them in Apple Valley, California on Saturday.
The two children were driving at 9pm on an ATV near their families’ campsite when the other car was apparently driving.
The collision of the car on the ATV was so severe that the boy’s helmet flew away.
His aunt Daisee Montano told NBC Los Angeles that life-saving measures were attempted at the scene, but the family knew immediately that he was dead.
“We were told that the first person who tried to perform my cousin’s CPR turned him around, but the only part that turned was his upper half of his body because he was so broken that we knew immediately that he was dead. was, “she revealed.
“My cousin was mangled. He was trampled to death,” Montano added.
“And my brother cried on the ground to please help his son live back.”
Christina is currently fighting at Loma Linda University Medical Center to stay alive, family says.
Christina’s uncle, Ernie Nunez, said, “she is currently lying there lifeless and trying to fight for her life.”
“She has multiple broken bones, broken femurs, fibula. Her spinal cord to her brain was cut off,” Felicia Nunez, Christina’s mother, told NBC.
Investigators are now looking for the driver of a 2021 orange Polaris Razor Turbo S or S4.
The driver stopped shortly after the accident and then turned out the light before driving away, according to witnesses.
“Jacob: Dad loves you very much and we will not stop until you get justice,” the boy’s father said in a statement.
“Find these people who just left two kids on the floor and just dying down the road,” Christina’s uncle said FOX Los Angeles.
“Without soul or heart in her body to even just try to stop and to cry for help.”
The sun was out for an update on the hunt for the driver, but authorities did not respond at the time of publication.
