Search On For Hit And Run Driver
Police and the aunt of a 13-year-old boy who was struck by a motorist in Far Rockaway last month are asking for the public's help in finding the careless driver who didn't stop.
The boy, Dameon Baswell, was hit by a green van or SUV at about 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22, at the intersection of Beach 25 Street and Freeway. Baswell, a student at Beach Channel High School, was taken to Jamaica Hospital where he was treated for a facial laceration and a bruise on his head.
"If anyone has information please come forward," Baswell's aunt, Vavese Alder, urged. Police said the case has been assigned to a detective in the 101 Precinct. Anyone with information can call the squad at (718) 868-3428.
