HUNTINGTON - A family is asking for help in finding the driver that struck Walter Ramos Wednesday before driving off.
Harmony Nielsen says her future brother-in-law was walking home on New York Avenue when he was hit at around 4 a.m. Wednesday. Nielsen says the 23-year-old landscaper was left on the roadside in the rain and had been lying there for at least 30 minutes before someone saw him and called the police.
Police say they received a 911 call at around 5 a.m. for a pedestrian involved in an apparent hit-and-run on New York Avenue and East 15th Street.
Ramos, who was unconscious at the scene, was taken to Huntington Hospital. He remains hospitalized and told News 12 Long Island he does not remember the accident.
