Police are asking for the public’s help finding a driver who fled the scene after hitting a senior citizen and a child in Midwood on Sept. 17.

Cops say the driver of a blue Infiniti sports utility vehicle ran a red light at Nostrand Avenue and Kings Highway at 4:10 pm and struck a 70-year-old woman and an 8-year-old boy waiting at a bus stop.

The driver fled the scene of the accident and authorities do not know the vehicle’s license plate number.

Authorities have released a surveillance video that shows the vehicle fleeing after the incident, in the hope that it will help the public identify the driver.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.

Reach reporter Vanessa Ogle at vogle@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260–4507. Follow her attwitter.com/oglevanessa.

I'm surprised. Since almost every bit of damage, injury and death committed by someone driving a motor vehicle seems to elicit an "Oh well, waddya gonna do?" from the DA, PD, and everyone but the victim & family.
