Original: Suffolk County Detectives have released a description of the vehicle believed to be involved in the New Year's Eve hit and run that left a West Islip teen critically injured.

A blue, late-model Chrysler 300 is identified as the vehicle involved in the crash, which occurred on Udall Road just before 10:30 p.m., according to police.

Given the extent of the crash, the car involved would have damage to the driver’s side headlight and the driver’s side mirror would be missing, police said.

Some eyewitnesses believe the victim may have been struck intentionally, according to CBS.

The driver of the vehicle has not been identified. The investigation is ongoing.

The teenage victim, whose identity police have not released, remains in a coma at Good Samaritan Hospital, according to 1010 WINS.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on the crash or the vehicle to call the Third Squad at 631-854-8352 or call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.

Im sure they are running all the info through DMV and will soon have every registered Chrysler 300 in NY LI and the metro area at there disposal. You can run but you cant hide. This person will soon be caught! If they were smart which im assuming they arent they would be thinking about giving themselves up right about now.
