RNSP units located the vehicle and the driver involved in a hit-and-run incident last night that left an eleven-year-old boy in serious condition.
The perp was apprehended by the NYPD’s 101 Precinct officers.
“The RNSP did a phenomenal job during this investigation and search,” an official told Matzav.com.
As first reported on Matzav earlier, the boy was riding a bike at Healy Avenue, near Dickens Street, in Bayswater, NY, when he was struck at about 7:40 p.m. The boy was taken to Long Island Jewish Medical Center in critical condition. The driver of the sedan fled the scene.
Surveillance video posted on Twitter by @NYCityAlerts showed the moment of impact, when the boy flies from his bike and bounces off the windshield, as the car keeps going, dragging the bike several feet.
