Police search for driver who hit 6-year-old boy in Brooklyn

Police are looking for the driver of a van who struck a 6-year-old boy in Brooklyn and then fled the scene.



It happened at Fort Hamilton Parkway and 41st Street in Borough Park Wednesday, police say.



Surveillance video shows a black minivan turning right through a red light and hitting the child.



The video shows the boy's mother rushing to her child's aid and bringing him across the street as the driver appears to stop for a moment, look at the damage to his car and then flee southbound on Fort Hamilton Parkway.



Police say the vehicle's license plates included the letters T-L-C, and is likely registered to a livery service.
