Cops are looking for a cold-hearted driver who struck a man on the Brooklyn Bridge and dragged him along the road earlier this summer.
The 26-year-old victim — who only recently got out of the hospital from the Aug. 21 mauling — was heading into Brooklyn early in the morning when a dark sedan hit the rear of his 2001 Chevy Suburban.
The victim emerged from his vehicle and approached the driver of the errant car, which police say could have been an Acura. But the suspect gunned the engine, smashed into the man and dragged him 50 feet toward the Cadman Plaza West before the victim broke free.
The man lost his right ear and sustained injuries to the chest, arms and face.
“He just got out of the hospital a couple of weeks ago,” a police source said. “He had to return for more surgeries.”
Police released a sketch of the car’s passenger, who is described as an 18- to 20-year-old white man with brown hair.
