    An Upland teenager was the victim of a bizarre accident, Wednesday morning.

    16-year old Nacoreyua Hough was on his way to school when a car struck him at 6th and Main Street on Upland Borough.

    According to Hough, the driver, who said she was a nurse at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, stopped and talked with him.

    After asking him if he wanted to go home, she then drove him to his house, dropped him off, then left. Nacoreyua then went inside and told his mother, Lynnita Hough, about what happened.

    “I thought he was joking for a minute,” said Lynnita.

    Nacoreyua eventually went to the hospital and received three stitches on his right palm as well as a cast for possible wrist fractures.

    While the driver never told Hough her name, Police were able to find a fog light cover that came off the car after it struck him. They have determined that the woman was driving a white, 2007, or newer, Dodge Neon.

    The driver faces charges of leaving the scene of an accident and possibly more. Police also stated that Nacoreyua had the right of way as he crossed the street.

    While Nacoreyua is recovering fine, his mother still wants justice.

    “I just want you to come forward, whoever you are, and just clear your conscience,” said Lynnita.
