Nassau police are hoping a newly released video will help solve a hit-and-run crash 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 a right turn 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.
