Man charged in hit-run that killed South Brunswick biker
SOUTH BRUNSWICK — A 57-year-old Jamesburg man has been charged with crashing into a motorcycle and leaving its 25-year-old rider to die on the road.
Peter Prete was arrested Thursday at his home following the crash about 8:50 p.m. on Cranbury and Davidson Mill roads.
Prosecutors say Prete was in a 2004 Jeep Wrangler that crashed into Cory Holsten. Investigators say Prete fled the scene.
Holsten, a resident of the Dayton section of the township, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Prete was charged with second-degree leaving the scene of a fatal accident and was issued several motor vehicle summonses.
New Jersey 101.5 did not know Friday whether Prete had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
