Commerce City, Colo. (AP) A teenage boy critically injured in a hit-and-run collision in commerce city is improving.

A spokeswoman said D'artagnan Dye was listed in serious condition Thursday at the children's hospital in Aurora.

Family members have said the boy suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain when a white Ford F-150 pickup struck him while he was riding his bicycle Tuesday afternoon.

Commerce City Police Lt. Chuck Saunier says the driver of the truck briefly stopped, then continued on.

Twenty officers stopped some 500 vehicles at the intersection where the boy was hit about 24 hours after the accident, trying to generate leads.
