NOW: Family urges driver who hit 13-year-old on bike to come forward

HALES CORNERS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 13-year-old riding his bike in Hales Corners on Monday was hit by a driver who didn't stick around to see if he was okay.

Brady Evans lives about 2 minutes down the road from the spot he was hit on Highway 100. Now, his parents are begging the person who did it to come forward.

"I heard cars going past but I couldn't tell one was right behind me and I ended up getting hit from behind."

Next thing he knew, 13-year-old Brady Evans was face down in the mud.

"My knees, they hit the curb but luckily my head and upper body landed on the grass but I did land on my left shoulder."

That shoulder, now broken. His knees, badly scraped. Brady spent several hours in the hospital. He is now back home with his family, and they're wondering who did this.

"I don't understand why this person didn't stop to see if a person was okay or not, that just bothers me," said Brady's dad Brian Evans.

"Whoever did it didn't have the decency to stop and make sure that I was alright," Brady said.

Grateful that it wasn't worse, Brady and his dad want the driver to own up to what happened. 

"If they said sorry, I would forgive them," said Brady.

"We'll forgive you. My son is healthy and he'll be fine, just do the right thing," said Brian.

Brady is expected to recover in 6-8 weeks. He wasn't able to get a good look at the car that hit him but if you know anything that may help police solve this case, you are asked to call the Hales Corners Police Department.
