Police are looking for a driver who fled the scene after colliding with a motorcycle.

A driver hit a 21-year-old motorcyclist, causing him to fly off of his bike, in Jackson Heights last month, but the driver didn’t stick around to see if the victim was alright, police said.

On Aug. 19 at 4:26 p.m., the motorcyclist was driving his bike in front of 85-21 37 Ave. when the driver attempted to make a U-turn in the same area. The motorcycle collided with the red Cadillac SRS sport utility vehicle and the victim was thrown of his bike.

The suspect then fled westbound on 37th Avenue. The victim suffered a fractured right hand and was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in serious but stable condition.

The suspect driving the car is described as a white or Hispanic male, 20- to 30-years-old, with black hair.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
