Law enforcement officials in Rockland County are seeking the public’s assistance as they search for a wanted man who may be in the country illegally who was involved in a hit-and-run crash last year that left a 7-year-old girl injured in Congers.
The Rockland County District Attorney issued an alert on Thursday regarding 26-year-old Carlos Osvaldo Garcia-Gonzalez, who allegedly was involved in a hit-and-run shortly after 8 a.m. on Nov. 21 last year that resulted in serious injuries for a 7-year-old who was walking to her school bus stop.
Officials said that Garcia-Gonzalez fled the scene without stopping to help the child. He has addresses in Congers, Haverstraw, Utica and San Pablo, Cali. The District Attorney said that Garcia-Gonzalez may also be an illegal immigrant.
Garcia-Gonzalez was described by officials as being 5-foot-7, weighing 175 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Garcia-Gonzalez’s whereabouts has been asked to contact Det. Phil Galligan by calling (845) 639-5846 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
