UPDATE: A 24-year-old factory worker from Paterson was charged Wednesday with the hit-and-run death of an 83-year-old Hawthorne woman as she crossed a Glen Rock street two days earlier.
The 2007 Honda CRV that David Romero was driving when he was stopped by Glen Rock Police Sgt. Michael Trover around 6:45 a.m. Feb. 1, not only has a dented hood. Tape also remained on an apparently new replacement windshield and bits of clothing were found in the grill.
Romero was pulled over on Lincoln Avenue near northbound Route 208 -- less than a block up and easily visible from the spot where Angelina Sanzari was struck around the same time 48 hours earlier.
"He apparently was due at work at 7 a.m.," a responder with direct knowledge of the incident said. CONTINUED HERE....
ORIGINAL STORY: A woman was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver Monday morning in Glen Rock, authorities confirmed.
The victim was struck crossing Lincoln Avenue between Dixie Avenue and Parker Avenue just off southbound Route 208 shortly after 6:30 a.m., Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor Elizabeth Rebein said.
She was pronounced dead a short time later at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood.
Meanwhile, the vehicle -- believed to be a green or dark-colored Honda CRV -- continued north into Ridgewood with heavy front-end damage, responders said.
The SUV had knocked the woman into Lincoln Avenue's southbound lanes, leaving clothing strewn across the roadway, said witnesses who included a truck driver.
Her name was being temporarily withheld pending the notification of next of kin, Rebein said.
Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella's Fatal Accident Investigations Unit is investigating with Glen Rock police, she said.
ANYONE who might have witnessed the crash, or has information that could help investigators, is asked to contact Glen Rock police at (201) 652-3800 or the prosecutor's office at (201) 226-5532.
Area residents are also asked to check their home surveillance video.
