HAWTHORNE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A driver has been arrested in connection with a crash that killed a woman and injured two others at a farmers market in northern New Jersey.
James Woetzel, 48, has been charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident which resulted in death, authorities said Monday. Bail was set at $200,000.
Around 2:12 p.m. Sunday, authorities said Woetzel drove his pickup truck through a barricade and hit three people, including a woman who was dragged three blocks.
“I heard the truck coming through the barricades, I heard crashing and I heard screaming,” vendor Jamie Borelli said.
“I ran after the car screaming, ‘stop, stop, stop’ because there was a person under the car,” said witness Blythe Roth.
