AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Police are looking for a driver they say ran over a 5-year-old Ohio boy and then apologized before driving away.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/WDf5ql ) reports that Joshua Shaw was crossing the street with his 9-year-old sister when he was hit Friday. The car tires rolled over his left leg, causing multiple severe breaks. He later had surgery at an Akron hospital and is facing a second one.

Joshua's sister said the driver stopped briefly and apologized before driving away.

Akron police say they have no leads and are asking for public's help in identifying the driver of the dark colored sedan. Joshua's family members say they hope the driver will come forward.
