MANALAPAN — Police have asked for the public’s help in tracking down a driver who swiped a young pedestrian on a road in the township and kept going, Monmouth County Prosecutor Raymond Santiago announced.

On Dec. 27 around 5:45 p.m., a juvenile was walking in the area of Union Hill Road near the intersection with Kristin Court, where no crosswalk exists. There is a strip mall with a Wawa convenience store along that stretch of the road.

He “made contact” with a vehicle that was headed east on Union Hill, Santiago said.

The vehicle, with an unknown make and model, kept going.

Managing to remain “upright,” the juvenile entered the westbound side of the road and was struck by an oncoming 2014 Toyota Prius, driven by a 27-year-old Milltown man.

The driver of the Prius remained at the scene and the youth was taken to a local hospital and treated for “serious” head and leg injuries.

He has since been released.

Officials are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to please contact Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Nicolas Logothetis at 800-533-7443 or Manalapan Police Department Patrolman Matthew Meyler at 732-446-4300.
