A hit-and-run driver struck and wounded a 63-year-old woman in Glen Cove on Friday afternoon, police said.

The victim was crossing Cedar Swamp Road at the corner of Alexander Place when she was hit by a vehicle and the driver fled the scene at 3:19 p.m., Glen Cove city police said.

The victim was taken to North Shore Manhasset Hospital, where she is being treated for non-life threatening head and shoulder injuries.

Police said a witness followed the suspect and wrote down the first three letters of the license plate, which were FJL.  The vehicle is described as a bluish green Honda, possibly a mid-1990s four-door sedan with after-market tires with sliver rims.  The driver was described as a Hispanic woman wearing her hair in a pony tail.

Glen Cove police ask anyone with information regarding this crash to call them at 676-1000.
