Police are looking for a dark sedan involved in a hit and run that killed a pedestrian Saturday night in Brentwood, Suffolk police said.

The pedestrian was crossing Suffolk Avenue east of Eastern Avenue at 10:45 p.m. when he was hit by a 1989 Nissan driven by David Nabbie-Cukierwar, 18, of Bay Shore. A second vehicle swerved and avoided hitting the victim, then stopped. The man was then hit by a third vehicle -- a four-door, dark colored sedan that left the scene.

Det. Sgt. Jeffrey Walker said it appeared that the victim was injured but alive after he was hit by the Nissan, but was killed when the dark sedan hit him.

The man was taken by Brentwood Legion Ambulance to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, where he was pronounced dead. Nabbie-Cukierwar and his passenger were uninjured, and police said Nabbie-Cukierwar is not facing charges. The Nissan was impounded for a safety check.

The identity of the pedestrian was not released, pending notification of his relatives.

Police are continuing an investigation. Walker said the entire incident was captured on a security video, which police are reviewing.

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to call the Third Squad at 631-854-8352 or Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS. Calls will be kept confidential.
