Hit & Run Kills 4 Year Old
On September 3, 2004 about 11:30 a.m., an adult and a four year old boy, had just left Dunkin' Donuts and were holding hands and crossing with the light on the Boulevard heading east when a red Ford Expedition traveling east on Williams, turned left onto the Boulevard and struck the pedestrians. Witnesses said that the adult was clipped by the vehicle, but the child was hit by the left bumper before the vehicle sped off. It appeared that the child traveled about 15 feet.   HHFD fire department responded and transported the child to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Gloria Amendano, 35, of Hackensack was stopped shortly thereafter in Little Ferry on Route 46 heading east and was arrested.   The Bergen County Fatal Accident Investigation Unit was reviewing the incident.  Story & scene photos
