MOONACHIE, N.J. -- Police were looking for a dark-colored Ford F-150 that a witness said took off after hitting a 22-year-old Moonachie woman on Route 46 in Clifton, leaving her hospitalized on life support. UPDATE: Arrest Made In Hit-Run That Left Moonachie Woman Critical
The truck has front-end damage, authorities said.
Anna Semioli remained in a coma at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson with a host of injuries, including several fractures.
The Montclair University student was struck just after midnight Oct. 9 on eastbound Route 46 near the split with Route 3 and Valley Road.
Loved ones hope a $10,000 reward brings more people forward after the witness reported seeing the truck -- perhaps someone who knows an owner who hasn't been using the vehicle lately.
"They don't have much to go on," family friend Barbara Morales told Daily Voice earlier this week. "They're hoping that if enough people are aware of what happened, they'll keep a lookout for cars in their neighborhood with damage."
"We also ask that any local and extend area residents or businesses with surveillance cameras review them [from 11:40 p.m. on Thursday night, Oct. 8 going forward] and report anything they deem suspicious," Sgt. Michael Bienkowski of the Clifton Police Traffic Division said.
Semioli's family and Eastern Outdoor Furnishings in Totowa have posted $5,000 each in reward money for information leading to the driver's arrest.
ANYONE with information that could help find the driver responsible for hitting Semioli is asked to call the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office: (862) 849-6019.
