Family who recently lost a loved one wants driver to come forward

On Sept. 21, a car struck a New Jersey Rabbi. For a time, his family surely hoped that he would survive. Sadly, on Sept. 27, he died with his wife at his side. His widow and family, now forced to deal with the tragic fact that they lost a loved one, want the driver involved in the hit-and-run crash to come forward.

The accident occurred at approximately 7 p.m. The 58-year-old Rabbi was crossing Route 440 when he was hit. The driver of the vehicle failed to remain at the scene. Police have yet to locate the vehicle or its driver.

Police received a description of the vehicle from a witness. It is believed that the vehicle is either a Toyota Corolla or Camry. It is said to be black, has four doors, tinted windows and "shiny" rims. In addition to two broken legs, the Rabbi suffered bruising on the brain, collapsed lungs and a broken pelvis. His injuries were simply too severe to survive.

At about 7:30 p.m. on the night the accident occurred, the New Jersey man's widow was on her way home from work and saw the aftermath of the accident. She remembers thinking that the crash must have been bad. She had no idea at that point that her husband was involved. Shortly thereafter, the police told her he was struck by a hit-and-run driver.

Once police locate the driver believed responsible for the death of the Rabbi, the family may file a civil lawsuit against him or her. A family who has lost a loved one in such a manner retains the right to file a wrongful death claim against the party or parties deemed to have caused or contributed to the death of their family member. In this case, if the man's widow proves to a civil court that the driver was negligent, she may be awarded damages often seen in tragedies such as this one.
