Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who struck a 47-year-old man who was walking on the sidewalk in Flushing Saturday evening—leaving him in critical condition.

The incident took place around 9:30 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of Leavitt Street and 35th Avenue. Tire tracks remained visible on the pavement Sunday where the vehicle jumped the curb before hitting the man, CBS reported.

No arrests had been made as of Sunday morning, and the victim was listed in critical condition at New York Presbyterian Queens, a spokesperson for the NYPD said.

Police did not have a description of the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run. Anyone with information is asked to reach out to the NYPD.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
