Police are looking for two people in a deadly hit and run. The incident happened in the 94-hundred block of 76th Street in Queens around 7:30 Tuesday night.

According to investigators, a 2003 white Lincoln was traveling southbound on 76th Street when the driver was pushed out of the car.

A woman passenger then hopped in the driver's seat and fled, witnesses told Eyewitness News.

The Lincoln plowed into several other vehicles on the street, before driving away.
