Seven people were injured early Monday in Brooklyn when a driver hit multiple vehicles with his SUV before fleeing on foot, police said.

Driving near the intersection of Clarkson Avenue and Bedford Avenue in Flatbush around 1:30 a.m., the suspect plowed into five different cars while driving a Toyota Highlander. One of the cars was hit so violently that it flipped over.

Seven people were taken to the hospital after the hit-and-run, including two in serious condition.

Police are still searching for the driver of the SUV, who took off on foot, leaving the vehicle behind at the scene.
