Suffolk County police are looking for a hit-and-run trucker who was involved in a crash that ended with a victim having their finger amputated on the Long Island Expressway in Holtsville two weeks ago, authorities said Monday.

A woman was driving a Ford Freestyle westbound in the left lane of the LIE when her SUV collided with a tractor trailer between exits 63 and 62 shortly after 10 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, police said.

One of the passengers in the SUV had a finger amputated as a result of the crash, police said.

Sixth Squad detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding the truck driver. Suffolk County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
