BRIGHTWATERS, NY (WCBS 880) - Police say a 20-month-old girl may have wandered off from her family member.

The child was then hit and seriously injured by a driver behind the wheel of a large dark-colored SUV, according to police.

This happened in the front of the Stone Water garden apartment complex in Brightwaters, Long Island.

“It appears as though a dark-colored SUV was exiting the parking lot, making a right turn and the little girl was struck and vehicle left the scene,” Suffolk County Police Sgt. Anthony Lavista¬†told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall.

Lavista said there are a lot of possibilities, including that the driver lives in that apartment complex and that the driver never knew he or she struck the little girl.

Anyone who witnessed the accident should call police.
