Yesterday, members of the Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit arrested a man in connection with a hit-and-run that seriously injured a pedestrian in Jersey City on December 6th, 2022, Suarez said in a statement.

Brandon Espinosa, 42, of Jersey City, is charged with knowingly leaving the scene of a motor vehicle collision resulting in serious bodily injury and endangering an injured victim.

He was arrested at the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office in Secaucus and released pending his first court appearance, which is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, March 7th.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2022, at approximately 4:35 p.m., the Jersey City Police Department was notified of a pedestrian struck at the Griffith Street and Sherman Avenue intersection.

Responding officers found a 36-year-old Jersey City man with serious injuries and he was
