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.
