Cops: Hit-run driver injures Farmingville teen
A 14-year-old Farmingville boy was in serious condition after being struck by a vehicle that fled the scene early Saturday, Suffolk police said.
Police were searching for the vehicle last night and no arrests had been made.
The vehicle is believed to have front-end and headlight damage because broken glass was found at the scene, Det. Sgt. James Madden said.
Madden said the boy's injuries appeared to be non-life-threatening. His name was not released.
Madden said detectives interviewed the boy's mother, who said he had been spending the night at a friend's house.
At the time of the accident, the boy was returning to that house with a friend, Madden said.
That stretch of road has no sidewalks, he said.
Detectives ask anyone with information about the accident to contact the Vehicular Crimes Unit at 631-852-6555 or call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
