NEW YORK (AP) - Police are looking for a dirt bike driver who left his 14-year-old passenger lying seriously wounded on a New York street after colliding with a car.

The New York Police Department says the female passenger is hospitalized in critical condition after the crash around 4:30 p.m. Friday in Brooklyn.

Police say the dirt bike was going northbound fast when it hit a car making a U-turn on New Jersey Avenue in the Brownsville neighborhood.

Both the dirt bike driver and his 14-year-old, female passenger were thrown from the bike. Police say he was able to get up and ran off, with a nearby surveillance camera capturing his photo.

Officers found the girl lying unconscious in the roadway.

The car’s driver stayed at the accident scene.
