The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Palisades Park Police Department are requesting information from the public regarding a hit and run with a struck pedestrian where the victim sustained serious injuries.

Bergen County officials say on Sunday, July 21, at approximately 2:14 a.m., the Palisades Park Police Department received a report of a fight in progress outside of 400 Bergen Boulevard.

Upon arrival, officers observed a male victim lying in the roadway with serious injuries.

The victim, a 33-year-old male, was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center where he remains in critical but stable condition.
