    Police are asking for the public's help finding a driver wanted in connection with the hit-and-run of a teen last week in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    A 14-year-old boy suffered non-life threatening injuries after he was hit while riding his bike to school on March 15, according to police.

    The suspect was driving a silver Toyota Prius, which witnesses believe was a 2004-2009 model. The suspect's vehicle hit the boy at 7:22 a.m., then fled the scene, police said, before returning to the scene around 7:25 a.m.

    The incident happened on Putnam Avenue near Western Avenue right near the King Open School.

    Becca Wolfson of the Boston Cyclists Union says this is an example where more protective infrastructure for cyclists is needed.

    "When you have that physical barrier, either a parked car or a curb to separate people biking from traffic, it infinitely improves safety," said Wolfson.

    Wolfson said many kids bike to school in Cambridge and they need to be safe.

    "I believe there are 250 bike racks now that are filled every single day which is amazing, and we need to actually protect those kids that are trying to get to school."

    Police say the 14-year-old has a broken wrist and concussion-like symptoms but is expected to be okay.

    Officials are asking anyone with information on the vehicle or suspected driver to contact Officer Christopher Sullivan in the Cambridge Police Traffic Enforcement Unit by phone at (617) 349-3307 or by email at PDTrafficSupervisors@cambridgepolice.org.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
