Adam Jones, from Wednesbury, near Walsall, was hit as he crossed a junction of Beacon View Road and Walsall Road, West Bromwich, with his bike at 7.30pm on Thursday 26 March.

The schoolboy (pictured left) was flung through the windscreen of the vehicle. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

The driver abandoned the car and fled the scene without calling any assistance for Adam.

Despite a thorough investigation by West Midlands Police and a Twitter campaign by Adam's family, the culprit has not been found.

Reward for information

We're offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information which leads to the arrest and charge of the individual responsible.
