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.

A short video shows the light-colored sedan that police said struck the boy and never stopped, police said. The clip appears to be from a home surveillance camera, and in the footage, the driver zips through a residential street.

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

Fifth Precinct detectives ask anyone with information to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS.
