NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Newark police say an 18-year-old man from Pearl River, N.Y., was struck and killed by a car as he left a New Jersey Devils hockey game.
Thomas Argenti was struck around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in the area of the Prudential Center in Newark. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
No charges have been filed against the 28-year-old who was driving the vehicle that struck Argenti. Police say the driver stopped and remained at the scene.
Argenti graduated from Pearl River High School in 2012, where he played football and lacrosse, according to the Nanuet Patch.
“The kids may do things to remember him this spring,” Pearl River HS principal William Furdon told the Patch. “We met with the seniors on the football team and the lacross team to talk through it.”
Furdon said the school will hold a moment of silence at Wednesday’s boys basketball game.
