Po­lice seek­ing driver in Li­brary Av­enue crash

Newark Post - - FRONT PAGE -

Po­lice are search­ing for a driver who fled af­ter strik­ing a pedes­trian near the Ne­wark Li­brary on Mon­day night.

The crash hap­pened at 9:21 p.m. near the in­ter­sec­tion of Li­brary Av­enue and Ogle­town Road, ac­cord­ing to Lt. An­drew Ru­bin, a spokesman for the Ne­wark

Po­lice De­part­ment.

The pedes­trian, a Ne­wark man in his 40s, was cross­ing the south­bound lanes of Li­brary Av­enue just south of the in­ter­sec­tion when he was struck by a pick-up truck.

The pedes­trian was taken to a lo­cal hos­pi­tal, where he was ad­mit­ted in se­ri­ous con­di­tion with a skull frac­ture and an in­jury to his lower leg.

Po­lice are not sure

whether he was cross­ing in a marked cross­walk.

The red pick-up truck, pos­si­bly a Ford, fled south on Li­brary Av­enue. The truck may have dam­age on the front right side, Ru­bin said. No de­scrip­tion of the driver was avail­able.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the crash should con­tact Of­fi­cer An­drew Maiura at 302-366-7100, ext. 3495, or [email protected] ne­wark.de.us.
