The New York Police Departement has arrested the driver responsible for the hit and run collision that injured a Jewish man in Crown Heights on Friday afternoon, December 14, 2018.
“The perpetrator will be charged with felony assault and leaving the scene of an accident with serious injuries,” a police official told COLlive.com about the arrest that was made on Wednesday at 1:00 PM by the 71st Precinct Detective Unit.
The Jewish man was crossing Union Street between Kingston and Albany Avenues at around 12:00 pm, when a white Kia Sedan hit him. People at the scene said the vehicle then dragged the man before the victim fell from the car.
Hatzalah transported the victim to Methodist Hospital, where he was being treated for non-life threatening injuries, including broken bones, police said.
After canvassing the area, Shmira located the vehicle, abandoned on Union Street between Utica and Rochester Avenues. They then notified NYPD.
