CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBS) – Cherry Hill Police have arrested and charged a woman for leaving the scene after a fatal auto-pedestrian accident last Thursday.
According to police, on Sunday afternoon, 25-year-old Elisha Ann Pollosco of Berlin, New Jersey, confessed to driving the vehicle that left an unidentified man injured and killed 25-year-old Binh Tsan of Runnemede, New Jersey.
The fatal hit-and-run accident took place along Route 70 at Ranoldo Terrace at about 12:30 p.m. on Thursday. Police say Pollosco was traveling at a high rate of speed, and according to witnesses, after striking the male and female victims, the driver made no attempt to stop.
Further investigation led officers to search for a silver or light gold colored Pontiac Gran Prix/Grand Am or similarly styled vehicle. After posting several fliers of the suspected vehicle, Cherry Hill authorities received a tip on Sunday which led them to a home in the 200 block of Cross Keys Road in Berlin. There, authorities located a silver 2000 Pontiac Grand Am parked in the driveway with damage consistent with the accident.
Police impounded the vehicle as evidence and brought the registered owner back to the Cherry Hill Police Department for an interview where she then allegedly confessed to police. Pollosco was arrested and charged with one count of Leaving the Scene of a Fatal Accident and one count of Hindering Apprehension.
Pollosco was transported to the Camden County Jail where she awaits a September 27, 2011 court date.
Pollosco’s license will be revoked and she could face up to 15 years if found guilty.
