 Inquirer staff writer Liz Wagner reports:

Lower Merion police today were looking for a gold or tan station wagon, possibly a Volvo, after an afternoon hit-and-run accident left a 13-year-old bicyclist in critical condition.

The accident occurred just west of Morris Avenue in Bryn Mawr. Both the bicyclist and the car were traveling west.
The 13-year-old boy, a Bryn Mawr resident, suffered a head injury and was flown to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The driver was said to be a white woman in her 30s or 40s. Police said the station wagon has a shattered windshield separated from the frame and right-side damage, and was last seen traveling north on Morris Avenue after the crash.
Anyone with information is urged to call Lower Merion police at 610-649-1000.
