The accident occurred yesterday at 4:05 p.m. near the intersection of Meadowlands Parkway and Tenth Street West, according to Police Det. Sgt. Michael Torres.

The vehicle, described as an older model, silver colored sedan, possibly a BMW 500 or 700 series, struck a 52-year-old woman as she was crossing Meadowlands Parkway, officials said.

The driver fled the scene northbound on Meadowlands Parkway towards Route 3 West. The woman, who temporarily lost consciousness, was rushed to Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health and was treated for a severe laceration to her head and elbow, authorities said.

Surveillance video shows the sedan running a red light moments before the impact and witnesses say the driver, a white male in his late 20s to early 30s, stopped his vehicle over 300 feet away, got out to look at the woman and jumped back into his vehicle when the police arrived, police said.

The above photograph indicates that the front windshield near the driver side is cracked and that there should also be damage to the driver’s side headlight.

Anyone with any information on the incident is urged to contact the Secaucus Police Traffic Division at 201-809- 4603 or email traffic@secaucus.net.

  1. She was hit 1000 feet from the Meadowlands Hospital E.R. entrance and they took her to Jersey City? What’s that all about?

    • Meadowlands is not a trauma center. Likely transported to JCMC because it is a Level II Trauma Center and thus more equipped to handle this type of patient.
