Police Look For Driver In Fatal L.I. Crash

PATCHOGUE, N.Y. (CBS 2)Police on Long Island were looking for a car that sped off following a fatal accident.

A pedestrian was killed Friday night After being struck by a car, shortly after 9 p.m. in Suffolk County.

The victim was in the southbound lane of West Avenue when he was hit.

The driver of the car remained at the scene, but another nearby car drove-off. Police were trying to identify that vehicle and driver Saturday.

    It’s my guess that the driver of the second vehicle was a witness who didn’t want to get involved. It’s a pain being called to testify at a trial, and witnesses don’t get compensated for their time, travel, effort, inconvenience, and aggravation. A person has nothing to gain by being a witness. Also, witnesses have been known to be threatened, harassed, assaulted, and even killed by defendants.

  • Good Morning!

    I agree. This story, in the way it is written, makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The driver of the car? Which car? The one that hit the pedestrian or just a nearby car? Or were there two vehicles involved?

    Or, are we to just take the article as it is written literally as a car hit a person and then another random car that just happened to be there simply sped off?

  • Carlos Liriano

    this report does not make any sense at all, what really happen, was the victim hit by two cars?

    • Lousy CBS

      Typical of CBS reporters – lousy reporting
