Cops are hunting a hit-and-run driver who killed a pedestrian in the Bronx last year in a car later found torched on a Kingsbridge street, police said.

The driver struck and killed a 23-year-old man crossing the street December 26, 2011 while the vehicle was heading westbound on Mosholu Parkway between Paul and Goulden avenues about 04:24 a.m., police said. The driver fled before cops arrived.

Two days later, cops recovered the burnt-out vehicle, a 1999 Suzuki Vitara, on West 238th Street and Review Place, police said.

Video surveillance shows an unidentified man parking the car at the intersection and leaving before the vehicle goes up in flames.


Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit NYPDCrimestoppers.com.
