A Brooklyn teacher was left with a serious head injury after a driver struck her while she was crossing the street and didn’t stop.

Police are searching for the driver of a black Nissan sedan that ran down 67-year-old Dorothy Gargano at the corner of Union Street and Classon Avenue in Crown Heights just after noon on Tuesday.

Video released by the NYPD shows Gargano attempting to cross the street when a car turns the corner and strikes her. The beloved Brooklyn teacher who neighbors described as a kind and sweet person was thrown into the air and on top of the vehicle, and the driver just kept going.

Police say Gargano was transported to NY-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital in critical condition with injuries to her head and shoulder.
