Boggier, 58, was struck by a driver who remained at the scene July 23 during the funeral procession in Woodbridge. He was taken to University Hospital in Newark, where he was listed in critical condition. 

A 23-year-old woman was issued summonses for multiple traffic violations, according to published reports.
