SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A Shreveport woman is pleading for answers in the hit-and-run crash that left her son with a broken leg, arm and collar bone. 

The crash happened Sept. 2 in the 1700 block of Alda Street, in Shreveport's MLK neighborhood. 

Stephanie Brown says her 7-year-old son, Darius was riding his bike to the candy when he was run over by a car that he says was headed straight at him.

"When I went down there I couldn't do nothing but cradle him in my arm because he was down there just lying there in the street," said Stephanie.

Since the accident, Darius' mother says nights have been tough. She says he has dreams about getting hit again.

"He wakes up crying and then when he sees that I'm right there, he calms himself down and he'll try to go back to sleep," said Stephanie.

Stephanie thinks there may be some neighbors out there who know who the driver is.

"I would just like to have some justice for my baby. I mean I can't change that he's been hit but she knows what she did to my baby and I'd feel better if she apologized to my baby."

The police report described the car as a blue Ford and the driver is described as a woman with braids.

The Brown family ask that anyone with any information that can help find the driver please contact Shreveport police or Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
