A toddler is in critical condition after getting hit by a car in Williamsburg on Tuesday tonight.
The child was reportedly in a stroller being pushed by a 12-year-old sibling, when the stroller was struck. NYPD sources tell YWN that the children were in the crosswalk on a green light, when a 15 passenger van (who also had a green light) made a right turn, and struck them. The vehicle fled the scene without stopping, leaving the child in critical condition R”L.
Williamsburg Hatzolah Paramedics transported the child to Bellevue Trauma Center in Manhattan, and the NYPD along with Williamsburg Shomrim Volunteers searched the area for the vehicle – which is reported to be a white commercial type van.
Please contact the NYPD or Shomrim if you have any information which can assist the investigation.
Please be Mispallel for Yosef Yitzchak Ben Chava Yital.
