From Newsday, April 8:
Two hit-and-runs in two different boroughs
A pedestrian in Manhattan and a motorcyclist in Brooklyn were each critically hurt after hit-and-run drivers struck them Saturday, police said.
The Manhattan incident happened after a 24-year-old man had an argument with three other men at West 168th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in Washington Heights at about 4:40 a.m., police said.
Once the argument ended, the three men got into a gray or silver Nissan sedan, made a U-turn and struck the victim, who was standing in the street. They then fled the scene, police said.
The victim, who was not identified, was in critical condition at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, police said.
At about 7 a.m., a 2000 Yamaha motorcycle heading south on Kent Avenue was struck by a black sport utility vehicle going east on Flushing Avenue in Williamsburg, police said.
The 25-year-old woman driving the motorcycle was rushed to Woodhull Medical and Mental Health Center, and was listed in critical condition, police said.
The SUV fled the scene, said police, who were investigating.
