Police are looking for a hit and run driver who struck and seriously injured a 16 year old girl this morning. At about 6:30 AM this morning, the girl was crossing in the crosswalk at Erica Road and New Hampshire Avenue, when she was struck by a car, Officer David Silberstien of Traffic & Safety tells TLS.
The suspect then fled the scene.
A woman traveling behind the suspect stopped her vehicle and covered the victim with a blanket until first responders arrived, Silberstien said.
The girl suffered a broken arm, a broken pelvis and suffered other injuries.
The victim was transported with EMS to Jersey Shore Medical Center where she has undergone surgery.
Silberstien, who is investigating the incident, said they have no description of the vehicle other than that it is a dark 4-door Sedan.
