Police: Jersey City, NJ unlicensed driver critically hurt teen and then fled
JERSEY CITY — Additional criminal charges have been filed against a Jersey City man, stemming from a hit and run that left a teen critically hurt, according to Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez.
Jersey City Police first arrested 30-year-old Boris Marroquin Solarzano on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to the prosecutor, after the 15-year-old girl was hit on Saturday afternoon along Duncan Avenue.
