Police: Driver left scene after car flipped in front of Amityville laundromat

Posted: Updated:

Police in Suffolk County are searching for a driver who took off after crashing their car in Amityville Friday night.

Investigators say the vehicle, a 2014 Infinity, was heading south on Route 110 when it crashed into two utility poles. It happened near Locust Avenue around 11:20 p.m.

The vehicle partially overturned, ending up on its side in front of a laundromat.

They say despite the seriousness of the crash, the driver managed to get out of the car and took off on foot. Police are still looking for the driver.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact police.

Crews were on Route 110 Saturday to make repairs to the two utility poles that came down as a result of the crash. 

The same stretch of road was the site of a December 2018 crash that killed a 51-year-old pedestrian.
