The NYPD is offering up a $10,000 reward for help to find and convict the motor bike rider who slammed into a 4-year-old boy in a parking lot on Sunday and then sped off.
The kid remained in critical condition Tuesday, NYPD officials said at a news conference at One Police Plaza.
“No parent should have to endure such a senseless act,” said Kim Royster, the NYPD’s chief of transportation. “This is an active investigation and detectives are combing the area to get more information.”
The child was playing in the Meadowlake Trail parking lot at Flushing Meadow Park at about 5:50 p.m. when he was hit by a speeding rider, Royster said.
The reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction was doubled from $5,000.
