Kamloops RCMP are searching for a driver and a vehicle after it was involved in a hit and run collision this afternoon.

RCMP say the boy was struck and the vehicle did not stop after the collision and proceeded down Seymour Street and away from the scene. The boy was taken to a local medical facility.

The suspect vehicle is a black, newer model Buick Encore and it may or may not have damage to the front left quarter panel.
