GLOUCESTER CITY, N.J. (CBS) – Authorities in Camden County are investigating a hit-and-run accident that left a 21-year-old woman in critical condition Friday morning.
Angela Gattuso of Clarksboro was in her red Honda SUV early Friday when it struck a railroad track on South Broadway in Gloucester City, authorities say. When she was unable to move her vehicle, Gattuso called her father for assistance. According to investigators, when Gattuso’s father arrived at about 1 a.m. to attach the disabled vehicle to his tow truck, another vehicle struck Gattuso while she was standing on the side of the road.
The suspect’s vehicle fled south on Broadway, police say. However, the suspect’s vehicle left behind several pieces that allowed investigators to identify it as a Chevrolet Uplander from 2005 to 2009. The color could not be determined, but it likely the suspect’s vehicle has visible damage on the front end, according to investigators.
Gattuso suffered significant head injuries and is being treated at Cooper University Hospital.
Anyone with information on the vehicle or its driver is urged to contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Investigator Jeff Dunlap at 856-225-8400 or Gloucester City Police Detective Mike Barney at 856-456-7797.
