The driver hit a 28-year-old mother pushing a two-year-old in a stroller and a 35-year-old man at the intersection of George Street and Wyckoff Avenue around 5:10 p.m.

The driver fled the stop after a police officer ran his license and found it was expired. He sped off when the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle.

He abandoned the car in Brooklyn, but police have not yet made any arrests.

Emergency responders took all three victims to a nearby hospital in stable condition, where they’re being treated for minor injuries.
