A 16 year old who says he was hit by a car while riding his moped on Brand Highway yesterday is reaching out to the community in the hope of finding anyone who might have witnessed the incident.  

Jason says he was travelling along the Brand Highway heading South towards Wandina at approximately 11am yesterday 9/4/15 near Sydney street when a small vehicle turned into him. 

 "I was travelling straight at the speed limit and they cut across the road hitting me," he says. "I hit the front of it flew a couple of metres."

Jason says he was in a fair amount of shock and can't confirm the exact colour and make of the car. 

Jason says the driver and passenger of the car stopped and helped him off the road, said they'll get a ute for the moped, then just drove off. 

 "There was road works going ahead and the lads working gave me a hand getting me off the road and taking the moped home, one worker named Matt called the ambulance for me."

He says the driver and passenger of the car were both male aged approx 18-20. 

Jason was taken to hospital where he was treated for his injuries. He spoke with Police while in hospital and informed them that he believes he knows the passenger of the vehicle through mutual friends. "I was going to message him on Facebook about the incident and he blocked me."

Jason is hoping someone witnessed the incident and asks that if they did to please come forward. 

Geraldton Police can be contacted on 99234555 (option 4).
