Hit-and-run victim may face loss of sight
The victim of a hit-and-run says he may have permanently lost his eyesight because of the Tuesday crash.
Michael Hannigan says he was headed east on Middle Country Road around midnight when he was blindsided. Hannigan says his BMW was mangled and after the crash, a shard of glass or sliver of metal cut his right eye.
Firefighters had to cut Hannigan from the car and the person who hit him fled the scene.
Doctors say the damage to Hannigan's eye may be permanent.
Police have not yet released information on the suspect or car.
