Cops are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a Gravesend teen as he was skateboarding down Avenue T on Sunday afternoon.

The driver of a white Bavarian Motor Works sports utility vehicle was turning onto W. 10th Street from Avenue T when he smashed into 18-year-old Alejandro Tello at about 3:15 pm and then fled the scene, police said.

Emergency responders found Tello unconscious and unresponsive and transported him to Maimonides Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead, according to authorities.

Police discovered the four-wheeler abandoned on Bay 14th Street on July 24 at 3:30 am, a police department spokesman said, but they are still searching for the villainous driver and continuing to investigate.
