Police are investigating a hit and run in Brooklyn Wednesday afternoon that critically injured a woman.
The incident happened near 4th Avenue and Union Street in Park Slope around 12:40 p.m.
Witnesses say they saw the car blow through a red light and heard screeching, but the driver didn’t flinch, plowing through the woman crossing the street with the green light and sending her flying 20 feet in the air.
“Saw a car attempting to break for a red light, which he didn’t,” witness Levi Liberow said. “He must have been going 40 to 60 miles an hour, crossed the intersection, lady was walking on a green light and just picked her up, 20 feet in the air, and took off.”
Levi and Fraydie Liberow are volunteer EMTs who were at the same intersection when the horrific scene played out before their eyes.
“He hit her with the front end,” Levi Liberow said. “Front end, windshield, you name it. She rolled up in the air like a tumble sauce, like a chicken.”
A crowd surrounded the victim, doing whatever they could to help.
“You see somebody there, you want to do whatever you can to save them,” Fraydie Liberow said. “But there’s not much to do.”
The 46-year-old victim was rushed to Lutheran Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition with a serious head injury.
The suspect was driving a Hyundai Elantra that was reported stolen by its owner.
