A 57-year-old Pompton Lakes resident remained in stable condition Tuesday after being struck while crossing a local street the night before, authorities said.

Mark Schwartz was crossing Wanaque Avenue around 6:30 p.m. when he was struck by a Subaru Outback driven by a 62-year-old borough man, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Pompton Lakes Police Chief Derek Clark said in a joint announcement.

Schwartz was taken to Morristown Medical Center, they said, adding that the driver remained on the scene and presented a valid license.

The investigation was continuing, they said.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to contact the prosecutor’s tips line at 1-877-370-PCPO or or contact the Pompton Lakes Police Department Traffic Division at (973) 835-0400.
