(KXAN) A 10-year-old boy in Texas had to crawl a quarter of a mile home after getting struck by a hit-and-run driver in northwest Austin Friday afternoon.

Caden Walsh says he was walking home when a driver jumped onto the sidewalk and struck him. The impact pushed him into a tree and he became disoriented. When he realized how much he was bleeding he crawled back to his home. All he remembers was that the vehicle that hit him was a dark-colored SUV.

"He's down at the bottom of the stairs, his leg is just covered in blood, he probably has a ball pin hammer sized chunk of his leg missing, he's just screaming blood-curdling screams," stepfather Jay Brady recalled.

While he didn't suffer any broken bones, he had to get stitches for his leg wound.

"He could have been dead on the side of the road because somebody just took off, because they didn't care enough to even go check on him, they just took off, what kind of person does that?" wondered Walsh's mother, Heather Brady, who is now making a plea to the public to find out who hit her son and left him on the side of the road.
