Newark NJ police are trying to track down the driver involved in a hit-and-run accident that seriously injured two pedestrians.

According to authorities, the hit-and-run crash occurred at the intersection of Broad Street and Court Street in Newark, New Jersey. An out-of-control vehicle allegedly slammed into a 31-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman who were walking across the road.

Newark NJ police got a report about a car accident and sent officers to the scene. When police showed up at the scene of the accident, they saw the two victims “suffering from serious injuries.”

The victims were able to speak with the officers and provide a description of the silver sport utility vehicle that slammed into them. According to the victims, the vehicle may have been a Jeep.

The accident occurred while the victims were trying to cross Court Street onto Broad Street. After hitting the pedestrians, the driver reportedly sped off and fled the scene.

If investigators are able to identify and apprehend the driver, serious charges could follow. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 39:4-129, leaving the scene of an accident that results in personal injury can result in sentence of up to 180 days in jail, as well as suspension of the offender’s driver’s license for 1 year.
