“He was coming from this side and when he crossed the road, a car came from the other side very fast. So he hit him and threw him on the tree over there,” witness Anjum Joseph told CBS2.
“It’s a sad day, it’s a sad year. 2019 is the worst year that we have since we have started Vision Zero,” he said on Sunday. “There is a lack of resources to investigate and prosecute all those criminal drivers that leave the scene.”
Police said the victim remains in the hospital with severe head trauma.
