A reward is now being offered after last week’s hit-and-run accident in southwest Iowa that critically injured a child. Nine-year-old Jayden Anderson was struck by a vehicle while walking along Highway 92 in Treynor at about 8:45 Friday evening.

The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office says the vehicle that struck Jayden fled the scene, and the driver failed to report the accident. The vehicle is described as a red car with a black stripe, and was occupied by three-or-four subjects. Peyton Livengood says she and two others were walking with him at the time of the accident near Treynor school.

Livengood says as Anderson ran across the road, the car sped up and hit the boy, causing him to fly into the air, then the vehicle raced away. Pottawattamie County Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver. Anyone with information on the incident should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-247-0592.
