FAYETTE — Nearly a week after a Maynard teenager was killed in a hit-and-run crash south of Fayette, the driver who hit him has not been found.
Public pleas have been issued for anyone who can help find the vehicle that struck and killed Kaiden D. Estling, 14, around 10 p.m. June 28.
The youth was operating a blue moped on Highway 150 about two miles south of Fayette when he struck by a vehicle, which left the scene. The boy was found in the west ditch, but died despite lifesaving efforts.
No vehicle description has been released, but residents are being asked to look for a vehicle with recent damage. The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about the crash to call (563) 422-6067.
A GoFundMe page has been started for Kaiden, who would have started his freshman year at West Central High School and was out for the football team. He was born in Waterloo.
