Another pedestrian has been hit by a car in a Binghamton weekend hit-and-run case.
A woman was hurt in the latest incident, which witnesses said happened at a downtown intersection around 3:08 a.m. Sunday.
The incident is said to have occurred on Front Street, just south of Main Street.
According to Ed Hickey, the owner of the Belmar Pub and Grill at 95 Main Street, the woman who was struck is an employee of the business.
Hickey said the injured woman was transported to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City. He said she was "beat up pretty good." She sustained facial injuries and required several stitches.
Hickey said witnesses who saw the incident indicated the woman was struck by what may have been a red Toyota Corolla or a similar vehicle. The car had been westbound on Main Street and made a left turn onto Front Street.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Hickey said he is concerned "this person is still on the loose" and "next time, it might be a lot worse."
Hickey asked anyone who may know details about the driver or vehicle involved to contact investigators.
Binghamton detectives could not be reached for comment on the case Tuesday.
