    Not for the queasy. Hit around 1:03. The owner of the black Ford F-150 drove off. The pedestrian is clinging to life.

    Holly crap!
    Looks like the guy crossed against the light?
    The only reason I can think of not to stop is no drivers license, no insurance, illegal alien, warrants out. All of which are driver not being a law abiding citizen. Could be wrong but......

    Drunk, high, or a complete cell phone/texting fool, are things I'd add to that list.

    It looks like the ped was in the street out of turn. The driver of the black truck is a shit head and should get 20 years minimum. If the ped dies then give the driver 50 to life possible parole in 20.

    It looks as if traffic just continued like nothing happened.....

    I think there is more blame to be put on the ped than the driver for the actual hit. But the run part is what should put this guy in prison for hit and run (or whatever the charge is called in Jersey) And when the ped wakes up give him a jay walking ticket or even a citation for creating a hazard to the public. The guy walking looked like he was trying to get the attention of the driver of the truck, like they knew each other. It may turn out to be that they were fighting or that one of his friends was not paying attention to the road and ran over his friend. Just an idea, unlikely but possible.

    looked to me like the pedestrian did flinch and stepped backwards before being hit.
    hit and run is a serious charge
    had driver stopped and rendered help, video would have showed pedestrian stepped out in front of him
