Students at Pennsville Memorial High School have been asked to wear the school's colors Monday for a teenager seriously injured in a hit-and-run crash. 

Kyle Pszenny, a senior at Pennsville and member of the school's football team, was hit by a car early Sunday morning in a hit-and-run crash on North Hook Road in Salem County, New Jersey. 

The 17-year-old was taken to Christiana Hospital in Delaware with serious head injuries following the incident. According to the school's athletics Facebook page, Pszenny underwent successful surgery for what NBC Philadelphia reports is brain swelling, but is in a critical stage of recovery that requires him to rest in order to avoid infection. 

To show their support for Pszenny as he recovers, students were urged to wear blue and gold to school on Monday. Students have also been sending their well wishes by using the hashtag #KyleStrong on social media. 

According to, township police are still trying to identify the driver and vehicle. Authorities are looking for a Hyundai Elantra with what they believe is most likely some extensive front-end damage. 

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Pennsville Police Department at (856) 678-7777.
