It was 5:30 on the afternoon of December 12, 2019. I was riding along Fifth Avenue towards the east. On the other side of the street, I saw that an elderly man had come out of a grocery and was trying to cross the street when a car suddenly made a right turn into Fifth Avenue from Peace Street and hit him.
The old man fell down with a cry. Instead of stopping, the driver drove off at a great speed heading west. I noticed the following. The driver was a young man, the car was yellow, and the plate number was BJ7899. I immediately stopped a passing taxi and took the old man to the nearest hospital.
