NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A woman was left in critical condition Monday afternoon after being struck in by a hit-and-run driver, police said.

Police believe the woman was struck intentionally.

The 50-year-old woman was struck by a car as its driver made a U-turn at Bruckner Boulevard and 138th Street in the Port Morris section of the Bronx.

Police sources told CBS 2 the victim had an exchange of words with the driver who came close to running her down in the street.

Afterward, the driver made the U-turn and apparently struck the victim on purpose before speeding away, source said.

The woman pulled a friend out of the vehicle’s path before she herself was struck, sources said.
