A 28-year-old Carlstadt woman hit Thursday night by a car driven by a man who police said was drunk died today of her injuries.
Authorities were preparing to re-arrest 22-year-old Victor Kwak of Rutherford — who posted $75,000 bail yesterday — on vehicular homicide charges, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli told CLIFFVIEW PILOT.
Kwak lost control of his 2006 Lexus GS430 while headed east on Railroad Avenue between Everett Place and Boiling Springs Avenue just after 7:40 p.m. Thursday, Molinelli said.
The car “struck the curb on the south side of the roadway and then crossed back northward and drove off the road onto the sidewalk on the north side,” he said.
It then “then struck and knocked down a tree, a street light and a wooden utility pole” before ramming into Sandra Munoz-Molina, who was standing on the sidewalk, the prosecutor said.
Munoz-Molina was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with “serious bodily injury,” Molinelli said.
Police at the scene determined that Kwak was intoxicated, he said. Blood samples were later taken.
Kwak, who originally was charged with aggravated assault by auto, also was issued several motor vehicle summonses, including one for DWI, the prosecutor said.
