In a horrifying hit and run, a Jewish man was sent to the hospital after being hit by a car on Union street, and thrown to the floor. Hatzalah transported him to a local Hospital.
Around 12:00pm Friday afternoon, a horrifying incident unfolded on Union St mid block, as the Jewish man attempted to cross the street.
As he stepped from between two double parked cars, a white KIA Optima, speeding down the block hit him, throwing him onto the hood of the car.
Video footage of the incident shows the man being carried the rest of the block on the hood of the car, until the car swerves at the intersection of Union and Albany, sending the man head first to the ground.
The car sped off, leaving the scene.
Hatzalah and 911 were called, and the man was rushed to a local hospital for emergency treatment.
