Help find him! Unlicensed driver wanted in fatal hit-and-run of NJ woman
ATLANTIC CITY — Police are still looking for a suspect wanted in the fatal hit-and-run of a 37-year-old city woman last Thursday.
Amy Smith was struck by a car about 6:52 p.m. on Route 40 near the Bayview Motel.
Prosecutors say the car was being driven by Carlos Ignacio Prada Arriaga, 27, of Pleasantville. But police a week later still have not been able to locate him.
He has been charged with second-degree leaving the scene of a fatal accident and the third-degree crime of being an unlicensed driver involved in a fatal accident.
Prosecutors say Arriaga was last seen with Alejandra “Sandra” Rivera, whose photo they released to the public. Rivera was not identified as a suspect.
