The driver who struck the woman on Palisade Avenue just south of Bowers Street shortly after 9 p.m. fled the scene and the HCPO is seeking the public’s help in identifying the driver, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said in a statement.

Members of the Jersey Police Department responded to the area at approximately 9:09 p.m. on reports of a pedestrian struck with serious injuries. The victim was transported to the Jersey City Medical Center, where she is listed in stable condition.

The vehicle is described as a four-door sedan, consistent with a 2012-2014 Black Toyota Camry LE, with New York registration. This vehicle notably had a missing hubcap on the right, front passenger wheel.

The Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit and Jersey City Police Department are actively investigating this incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office at 201-915-1345 or to leave an anonymous tip at: http://www.hudsoncountyprosecutorsofficenj.org/homicide-tip/.
