UPDATE: A Hackensack driver who tried to flee after his car struck a 65-year-old shopper and a cashier helping her load groceries into her car at the Paramus ShopRite was charged with two counts of assault by auto, authorities said.


ORIGINAL STORY: A 65-year-old shopper from Hackensack and a cashier helping her load groceries into her car were seriously injured when they were struck by a runaway sedan in the Paramus ShopRite parking lot Saturday night, authorities said.

The 68-year-old driver "reported a mechanical failure" of his 2015 Nissan Versa after he put it into reverse in the lot of the Route 4 supermarket, Paramus Deputy Police Chief Robert Guidetti said.

Struck along with the customer was the 33-year-old cashier from Paterson, he said.

EMS members  took both women to Hackensack University Medical Center with serious injuries, the deputy chief said.

The sedan was impounded for a mechanical check as part of an ongoing investigation by Paramus detectives and members of the Bergen County Prosecutor's Fatal Accident Investigations Unit, he said.
