1 seriously injured in pedestrian accident in New Jersey

Any time you walk outside near a roadway, you could be at risk of being struck by a vehicle. There's only so much you can do as a person to avoid these accidents; you can use a crosswalk, look both ways or even walk in a buddy system, but if the driver in question isn't paying attention or is being negligent, you may still be hit.

In most cases of pedestrian accidents, the driver will stop to help at the scene. No one really wants someone else to get hurt, so this is what should happen. In this case out of Stillwater, New Jersey, a young man didn't stop. The 19-year-old was arrested due to admitting he was driving the vehicle involved in a hit-and-run. The accident resulted in a pedestrian suffering serious injuries.

The accident took place at around 1:11 a.m. on March 6. A pedestrian had been reported as being hit along Cedar Drive; the police reported to the scene and discovered the man. He was still laying in the roadway and had serious injuries. Fortunately, the 37-year-old man was able to be treated at the local Morristown Medical Center promptly, and he was later released.

What happened to the hit-and-run driver in this accident? Sometimes, the police have to work hard to get the suspect to come forward. As the New Jersey State Police investigated, they collected information about a dark, loud vehicle that had been racing on the road. Following a search for the vehicle, a 1992 Honda Accord was discovered with damage indicating a pedestrian accident. The vehicle was linked to the 19-year-old, who then admitted to being the driver who struck the pedestrian.
