The boy's mom told NBC10 Boston later Sunday that her son, 12-year-old Dominic Matos, was still in the hospital following the crash, and that he's currently considered stable.

Police have released two photos on Facebook of what they believe to be a gray or light green SUV, possibly a Toyota Highlander, that left the scene after being involved in the crash.
