The Kearny Police Department is investigating a hit-and-run incident that occurred on Friday, November 30th at approximately 8:05am at the intersection of Bergen and Davis Avenues. A juvenile pedestrian was struck by a vehicle that immediately fled from the scene without stopping to check on or render aid to the victim. The vehicle was last seen fleeing west on Bergen Avenue towards Kearny Avenue.
