According to Police Chief Jim DeVaul, the driver of the vehicle that struck the jogger at the junction in Maplewood on Friday night will receive a ticket. The victim, who is 20 years old, is now receiving treatment for critical wounds.
On Friday night, police had informed locals through Nixle: “Pedestrian involved in a car collision near Boyden Avenue and Menzel Avenue. First Aid and police are present.”
DeVaul reported on Monday that a 20-year-old male was crossing Menzel Avenue in the crosswalk while jogging up Boyden Avenue to the north. DeVaul said that the moment a vehicle turning right onto Menzel hit him.
The driver, he claimed, was at fault and would receive a summons for the breaches even though he stayed at the scene.
The jogger was transferred to University Hospital with “severe but not life-threatening injuries,” according to DeVaul.
