Police search for the driver
(New York - WABC, April 29, 2007) - A 14-year-old boy is killed in a hit-and-run crash. Now police in Brooklyn say they continue their search for the person responsible.
Eyewitness News reporter Patricia Wu in the Bushwick section has the latest.
This is a heartbreaking story. You can see the family and friends of 14-year-old Anthony Delgado are still out at the scene.
They gave Eyewitness News the invitation, which is actually an invitation for a baptism party that took place in that brick house last night.
The teen was riding home, crossing through this intersection, when he was killed. This is what his devastated mother has to say to that hit-and-run driver.
"The only thing I really want to say is that whoever hit my son and if anybody knows information, please come forward," said the mother of the victim. "Let the cops know."
Fourteen-year-old Anthony Delgado was riding home on his bicycle. It was just after midnight when someone driving a black Ford SUV hit him at the intersection of Palmetto Street and Central Avenue and kept on going.
Witnesses say the car was going very fast. Investigators are still searching for that hit-and-run driver.
Anthony's mother also told Eyewitness News, he was very loving and he had dreams of growing up to be a car designer.
