Man arrested in connection to New Jersey pedestrian accident

Even though pedestrian accidents occur throughout the state of New Jersey on a regular basis, most people involved are smart enough to stop their vehicle and check on the person who was struck.

However, some pedestrian accidents do not end the same way. Instead, the person who hit the victim continues to drive, hoping to get away for one reason or another.

According to the Lindenwold police chief and the Camden County prosecutor, a man has been arrested in connection with a New Jersey hit and run accident. The 58-year-old man was arrested for knowingly leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident with serious bodily injury.

Police noted that they were called to S. White Horse Pike to care for a man who was unconscious and laying on the road. Upon arriving, they determined that the man had been hit by a vehicle that was no longer in the area. Fortunately, police were able to use surveillance footage to track down the driver.

The man who was struck suffered head trauma and was taken to Cooper hospital in critical condition. He was later upgraded to stable condition.

In the event that a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle, the person who is driving the vehicle should stop to provide assistance and contact authorities. When this does not happen, the victim has less of a chance of survival, not to mention the fact that the driver will then face additional criminal charges. In this case, the man driving the car could be in even more trouble if the victim files a lawsuit.
