Police seek driver who hit disabled person, fled scene

Suffolk County police are asking for the public’s help in finding a driver who fled after his car struck a disabled person in Port Jefferson Station last month.

The man, accompanied by a woman, wore glasses and appeared to be in his mid-20s, police said.

The driver was pulling out of a parking lot at 47 Jayne Blvd. about 10:45 p.m. on July 29 when he hit and injured a disabled person, police said.

He was driving an older model, white Honda Accord with shiny chrome rims and white New York State license plates, police said. The car may have front-end damage on the drivers’ side, police said.

The driver was seen wearing a wristband from the Terryville Fire Department carnival, police said.

The Terryville Fire Department was holding its annual carnival that weekend at its station at 19 Jayne Blvd., according to its website.

Police said a cash reward of up $5,000 was being offered for information leading to an arrest, and anyone with information on the case should call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-8477.
