Nassau police are hoping a newly-released video will help solve a hit-and-run that broke a 14-year-old boy's leg last month in West Hempstead.

The teenager was walking east on Eagle Avenue on July 23 and was crossing Cleveland Street when a sedan hit him just after 9:50 p.m., police said.

The driver was last seen making onto Cleveland Street to go south, authorities said.
