A tourist from Los Angeles suffered severe head trauma Friday after being hit by a scooter that kept on going on the Upper East Side, police said.
She was one of three people critically injured in separate traffic incidents across New York City Friday evening — including a 10-year-old boy who was hit by a car while crossing a street in Queens, according to police.
The 65-year-old woman in town from LA was crossing West 64th Street at Amsterdam Avenue at around 7:30 p.m. when a man on a black and red scooter slammed into her and then fled the scene, police said.
The woman was in the crosswalk and had the right-of-way, according to sources.
She was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital where she was listed as critically injured, with severe head trauma. Police are looking for the hit-and-run suspect, the NYPD said.
