An 88-year-old man was hit by a silver sedan and left to bleed on Court Street on Monday afternoon as the driver sped off, cops said.
The victim, whose name has not been released by cops, was crossing at Montague Street at about 3:40 pm when the car hit him and dragged him one block to Pierrepont Street, according to witnesses.
By evening, he was listed in critical condition at Bellevue Hospital.
“When he got hit, he was spinning around and around. Half of his body was outside and half was inside,” said Manuel Aguilar, 42. “[The driver] didn’t show no remorse — he was trying to get the guy off him. He was swerving the wheel in between two lanes, like a snake.”
Cops roped off Court Street from Remsen to Pierrepont streets and rerouted bus lines. They also searched for security tapes from nearby businesses to find the driver’s license plate.
“Nobody’s caught as of yet,” a cop said on Wednesday.
The accident is under investigation. Witnesses are asked to call (800) 577-TIPS with information. Identities will be protected, cops said.
