Hit-and-run driver leaves NYC man clinging to life


A 47-year-old man is clinging to life after he was struck by a heartless hit-and-run driver in Brooklyn, police said Tuesday.

The victim was crossing North Conduit Ave. at Crescent Ave. in East New York when he was hit by a dark-colored Nissan Murano SUV about 3:15 a.m. Sunday.

The impact left the victim, who lives in Richmond Hill, Queens, unconscious with a severe head injury. EMTs rushed him to Brookdale University Hospital, where he remained in critical condition Tuesday.

The Murano was traveling west on North Conduit Ave. when it hit the victim and kept going, police said.

The 2009 or 2010 SUV had custom step rails installed.

Cops on Tuesday released a surveillance video and a picture of a similar vehicle in the hopes that someone recognizes it and can help lead them to the driver, who has not been caught or identified.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
