On Saturday night, a man walking along the northbound lane of the Lincoln Highway Bridge was seriously injured after being hit by a vehicle. The driver fled the scene.
The victim was taken to the Jersey City Medical Center, where he is listed in critical but stable condition.
This comes just six weeks after a 26-year-old Jersey City woman was seriously injured at Ocean and Warner Avenues after being struck by a black Cadillac Escalade that was traveling north on Ocean Avenue. In that case too, the driver fled the scene. That victim was also transported to the Jersey City Medical Center where she was treated for multiple injuries.
