Brooklyn, NY - Detectives at the NYPD’s 63rd Precinct are searching for a hit and run driver who struck an Orthodox Jewish girl yesterday in Marine Park as she played outside with friends on Shabbos afternoon.

Police said that the accident took place just after 5:30 PM on E 31st Street just south of Kings Highway.  The girl was crossing the street mid-block when she was struck by the vehicle which was traveling southbound on the one way street towards Avenue P.  Police described the car as a red or maroon four door Honda Accord, with an estimated model year between 1999 and 2002.


The Daily News (http://nydn.us/2qEqzPV) identified the girl as Hadassah Kaslov.

Hatzolah was called to the scene where Hadassah was said to be bleeding from both her chest and her head.  Her injuries were not considered to be life threatening and she was transported to Maimonides Medical Center in serious but stable condition.

Neighbors said that they have long had a problem with speeding cars speeding and have asked the city to install speed bumps.  Metal signs on the block bear the words “Drive Like Your Kid Lives Here.”

Quite a coincidence that the car that slammed into the pedestrians at Times Square last week was also a maroon Honda Accord.
