An alleged hit and run driver is behind bars thanks to an off-duty NYPD officer and a good Samaritan. A 17 year-old girl was hit by the car at the intersection of Ocean Parkway and Kings Highway on Wednesday night.

The off-duty officer witnessed the accident and then followed the car.

The good Samaritan then jumped in front of it to make sure the driver stopped until police arrived.

The victim is expected to be okay.
