Baltimore County police are searching for the driver of a white sports-utility vehicle that did not stop after striking a 15-year-old Dundalk boy riding his bike on the shoulder of North Point Boulevard early Saturday morning.

The boy, Jason Watson, suffered severe injuries after the vehicle swerved into the west shoulder of the roadway's southbound lanes and struck him at 12:17 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Watson was rushed to Maryland Shock Trauma, where he remained in stable condition Tuesday night.

The vehicle, believed to be a Ford Explorer with darkly tinted windows, struck Watson just south of the roadway's ramp onto southbound Interstate 695, police said.

The front right corner of the vehicle may be damaged, police said.

Police ask anyone with information to call 410-307-2020.
