An East Orange man has been charged in a hit-and-run crash that killed a Newark woman.

Peter Andrews, 28, was behind the wheel of a white Acura when he struck Yahaira Marrero-Marcano, 43, of Newark, while she was walking on the 200 block of Central Avenue in East Orange, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens, II, said.

Marrero-Marcano was transported to Rutgers University Hospital where she was pronounced dead at 1:06 a.m. on Thursday, April 29, Stephens said alongside East Orange Police Chief Phyllis Bindi.
