“On Sunday afternoon at approximately 5:13 PM, my officers, along with North Bergen police, responded to 10th Street and Tonnelle Avenue (Route 1 & 9) on a report of a bicyclist [being[ struck by a vehicle,” Schillari said in a statement.

The bicyclist, 19, from Jersey City, came down the 10th Street hill out into the traffic on Tonnelle avenue without stopping. He was struck by a 2010 Dodge Charger, driven by a male North Bergen resident, who stopped and called 911, authorities said.

The teen was transported to Jersey City Medical Center by North Bergen EMS and Jersey City Medical Center paramedics. Suffering multiple injuries and broken bones, the victim is still hospitalized and listed in stable condition after undergoing surgery, officials said.

Schillari also said the crash remains under investigation by the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office’s Crash Investigation Unit and no summonses have been issued to the driver.
