The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office has released additional details on yesterday’s hit-and-run accident on Duncan Avenue.
According to the HCPO, the police were initially called to an accident near the intersection of Delaware Avenue and Duncan Avenue shortly after 3:30 p.m.
Upon arrival, the officers discovered a second incident in which a 15-year-old girl was apparently struck and seriously injured near 196 Duncan Avenue. The vehicle that struck her as she crossed Duncan Avenue — a mid-size sedan — had left the scene.
The police then found a matching vehicle traveling on Condict Street and arrested the driver, Boris Marroquib Solarzano, 30, on suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated.
The girl was transported by Emergency Medical Services to Jersey City Medical Center where she is currently being treated for her injuries. Her injuries are critical and life-threatening at this time.
The collision is being actively investigated by the Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit and the Jersey City Police Department. Anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact the Collision Unit at 201-915-1345 or to leave an anonymous tip on the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office website.
