Suffolk County Police Vehicular Crime Unit detectives are investigating a hit-and-run in Huntington Wednesday that seriously injured a gas station employee, police said.
The victim, 60-year-old Jaffery Syed, of Greenlawn, was founding lying on the ground at the Sunoco gas station on Jericho Turnpike at 4:20 p.m., police said. Witnesses told police that a man driving a newer-model Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is possibly grey or silver, was attempting to pull out of the station when he struck Syed as he was standing by the gas pumps.
