Pedestrian Killed in Hit-and-Run

New York car accident attorney
In Newark, New Jersey, a hit-and-run driver killed a pedestrian as she was on her way to a bodega on Sunday, January 29th, at around 6:30 p.m. Josette Morales, age 47, was crossing Springfield Avenue and 19th Street when she was struck by a vehicle headed east on Springfield. A witness to the incident said the vehicle was speeding so fast that it was difficult to determine the type of car it was. One moment, he saw Ms. Morales going to the store, and the next, he saw her spinning, and in a cartwheel in the air. Because the driver never stopped or applied the brakes, he described the incident as a murder.

Her niece, Gloria Kasper, said she was a happy person who leaves behind two children and two grandchildren. She was the youngest of ten children. Her brother, Raymond Morales, said she was on her way to see a friend at the bodega, and someone struck her.

Police are conducting an investigation into the incident, and are attempting to find the hit-and-run motorist.
