NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) — Just before 4:00 p.m. Sunday, 12-year-old Javarrion Fizer was riding his bike on Richmond Hills Drive in Madison.

Shortly after he went out for a ride, Javarrion's mom, Ericka, received a call that "Jay" had been hit by a car.

Police say that according to evidence collected at the scene, Javarrion was hit by a silver vehicle that drove off from the scene. Javarrion was seriously injured and taken to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

"They just left my child on the ground. Just hit him and left. Didn’t check to see if he was OK, didn’t call the police, nothing,” Fizer said.


An hour after the crash, a silver Chevrolet Impala with a broken windshield and damage to the passenger side was dropped off at repair shop on Straightway Avenue in East Nashville. Police were able to find the car thanks to a citizen's tip.

Police have identified 24-year-old Devonta Hall as the man who dropped the Impala off for repair. If anyone knows of Hall's whereabouts, they are asked to call police.

“If you’re OK with not turning yourself in, you’re sick,” Fizer said.
