On the surveillance video you can see the victim with his arm outstretched. The images were taken around at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday on the 1400 block of Clay Avenue in the Claremont section of the borough.The victim is seen taking a few steps forward, right as a car speeds down the street. The impact sent him flying into the air.

Police said someone driving a black Audi hit the man, who was not in the crosswalk, and then kept on going. A man who called police described the scene to CBS2.

“I hear boom, walk into the street. I saw the guy on the floor. He’s bleeding a lot. I’m gonna call 911,” Pedro Feliz said.

The victim is a 32-year-old man who Fan learned is a frequent customer at the deli. He is now in critical condition, recovering at St. Barnabas Hospital.
