UPDATE: A Lodi man was charged Tuesday (Feb. 20) in connection with the hit-and-run death of 28-year-old Teaneck man as he crossed Route 46 near the Teterboro Walmart last month.
Brandon Bialek, 32, was booked into the Bergen County Jail on charges of knowingly leaving the scene of a crash resulting in death and hindering his apprehension by suppressing evidence. He remained there pending a detention hearing.
