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.
