Video Shows Cyclist Struck by New Jersey Councilwoman In Hit-and-Run Incident
A shocking video shows the moment a cyclist attempted to cross an intersection when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle, whose driver apparently fled the scene. The incident occurred on July 19th in Jersey City, New Jersey. The driver who allegedly hit the cyclist was identified as 36-year-old Jersey City Councilwoman Amy DeGise.
The Jersey City Councilwoman is accused of failing to slow or stop her car after striking the cyclist at the intersection of Forrest Street and Martin Luther King Drive last week. The cyclist, identified as 29-year-old Andrew Black, told police he had a green light and the right of way, NJ.com reported, citing a crash report. Officials later said Black was mistaken, and he did not have the green light, but DeGise is still facing mounting calls to resign because she still did leave the crash scene.
