An NYPD detective turned himself in and was arrested Tuesday morning after he was named as the alleged driver of a black SUV that was involved in a hit-and-run on April 15, according to authorities.
The vehicle struck an elderly woman in Hollis, leaving her in the street with injuries including a fractured face, an injured hip and major lacerations with a gash above her eye that required 20 stitches.
Michael Fantroy, 42, has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident while off-duty after Doris Gadpaille, 82, was blindsided by the vehicle on 199th Street.
Gadpaille was walking home around 10 p.m., following a day trip she took with her church, when she was hit crossing an intersection.
The NYPD said she was brought to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition, but since has told authorities that she does not remember being hit.
A witness who was driving near the SUV followed the vehicle home to find that it was going to the 15-year veteran detective’s residence.
Fantroy was released on $2,500 bail Wednesday afternoon.
