    Police are looking for the hit-and-run driver that struck and injured a teenage girl riding her bike in Brooklyn back in June, cops say.

    The NYPD says back on June 10, the 16-year-old girl was riding her bike on Farragut Road in East Flatbush when a white vehicle hit her at the intersection of East 39th Street and sped off.

    The car, either a van or SUV, continued traveling north on East 39th Street after hitting the girl, police said. The teenage bicyclist was taken to an area hospital, where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries and later released, according to the NYPD.
