Police Investigating Hit and Run
Crash occurred at a Route 9 intersection on Tuesday afternoon
Toms River police are investigating a Tuesday hit and run crash at the intersection of Cox Cro Road and Route 9.
Zbigniew Skora, 62, was driving a 2002 Honda when he allegedly struck a traffic signal and tractor trailer stopped on eastbound Cox Cro Road at the Route 9 traffic light at 4:30 p.m., said Chief of Police Michael Mastronardy.
"Mr. Skora then fled westbound on Cox Cro Road," Mastronardy said. "A witness gave a Pennsylvania plate that police dispatchers were able to trace through department records to a home on Camino Verde."
Skora faces "numerous" motor vehicle offenses following the incident and Officer Charles Grainger is investigating, the chief said.
The driver of the the tractor trailer, 54-year-old Robert Coccia of Lacey, was not injured, according to Mastronardy.
