Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood Police department and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Fatal Accident Investigation Unit are currently asking for the public help in tracking down the alleged hit and run driver .Authorities need the public’s help finding a dark-colored SUV that they allege ran over and killed a Hawthorne man near the Ridgewood train station Monday night and kept going.
Social media has been very successful in spreading the word in helping police identify suspects and it does trouble us that as of 7:43 pm on Tuesday evening the Ridgewood Police department had still not posted anything on their Facebook page to help with the search . Paramus Police however posted at the article from the Daily Voice just before 7pm that same evening.
This is not the first time the Ridgewood Police have been slow to use social media and a similar pattern was followed after an Ridgewood officer was almost hit by a driver earlier this year .
Anyone who saw or knows anything about the incident is urged to contact the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Fatal Accident Investigation Unit at (201) 226-5595, or the Ridgewood Police Department at (201)652-3900.
