Valley boy struggles to understand why he was victim to hit-and-run accident


A valley boy is recovering tonight after a horrifying experience.

He is the victim of a hit and run driver and tonight he is sharing his story.

“Pain... Like really sore," Clayton Biehl said.

On any given Sunday, 14-year-old Clayton Biehl would be out riding his bike or maybe playing basketball or baseball.

“There’s like little cuts and bruises," he said.

But today, he's on bed rest.

He's showing me all the scars and bruises left behind on his body.

Last Sunday, he took a hard hit from a car while he was riding his bike home from a friend’s house in Ahwatukee.

“I remember waiting at the light and it turning green and seeing like the things telling me to go so I went... And then I just remember seeing the car, getting hit," he said.

Clayton was left in the middle of the street as the driver took off continuing down ray road.

“Like really, I just remember being in shock…people hovering around me," he said.

Meanwhile his mom, Sarah Biehel, was at home checking the time, wondering why nearly an hour after he said he was on his way home he wasn’t back.

“I was texting him. I was repeatedly calling his phone and some guy answered…it was paramedic," she said.

Sarah rushed to the hospital and when she was finally allowed to see her son, he was in this condition.

“It was just, seeing that that was the worst part I think. It was so big they had to wrap it because it was bleeding," she said.

Clayton is thankful to be a live and recovering, but still struggles to understand how exactly someone could do what they did to him.

“I can’t like wrap my head around really what happened," he said.
