GARY, Ind. (AP) -- Authorities say a 13-year-old Gary boy has died after a car struck him and another boy before fleeing the scene.
 
The Lake County Coroner's Office says Malik Herron was pronounced dead from blunt force trauma at a hospital.
 
Gary police say the two boys were walking about 8 p.m. Saturday when a vehicle left the roadway and struck them. The Post-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1iJgjaC ) the other boy was able to go home and tell his parents, who alerted police. The other boy was treated for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.
 
Police were searching for a vehicle with damage to its front passenger side.
