Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck and injured two Eastern Suffolk BOCES employees Monday morning in the parking lot of the North Bellport campus.

The pedestrians are aides at the Bellport Academic Center at 350 Martha Ave., according to a statement from Eastern Suffolk BOCES chief operating officer David Wicks. 

Police said the incident was reported in a 911 call at 8:36 a.m. and that the driver fled the scene.

Police said they were investigating the intent of the crash and could not say whether it was accidental or targeted. 

“Our thoughts are with our injured staff members and their families during this difficult time,” Wicks said.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on this crash to call the Fifth Squad at 631-854-8552 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS (8477).
