QUEENS — Police are searching for a car they said struck a 16-year-old boy riding a motorbike in Jamaica last week.

The teen, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, was riding his moped on Ferndale Avenue on Friday, May 5, around 8 p.m., when he was hit by a dark-colored SUV occupied by two women driving down 143rd Street, officials said.

The car, which police described as either a Ford Escape 2008-2010 or a Mercury Mariner, continued driving without stopping, officials said.

The teen, who suffered several internal injuries as well as numerous cuts and bruises, was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, police said.

On Thursday, the NYPD has released surveillance video showing the vehicle shortly after the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
