There are Still Few Clues in the Hit-and-Run Death of an Elizabeth Man

More than a week after Angel Hernandez was killed on his motorcycle in a hit-and-run accident, police are still seeking witnesses.

A week after they asked the public for help in the hit-and-run death of an Elizabeth man, Woodbridge police are still in the dark about what happened to Angel Hernandez.

Hernandez was riding a motorcycle in the northbound lanes of Route 1 in Avenel late on June 12, a Sunday night. Just after 10 pm, motorists called police to report that his red Suzuki motorcycle was on fire in the center lane of the highway, while Hernandez's broken body was lying in the right lane.

There were few leads into what happened. Hernandez, 28, was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Rahway and pronounced dead an hour after the accident was reported.

Police have used a portable sign near the Mitchell Pl. intersection where the accident occurred to get the attention of people who might have been driving that stretch of roadway on the night of June 12. The sign asks for anyone who saw what happened that night, or who has any information, to call authorities.

Near the sign, family and friends constructed an impromtu memorial of balloons and candles, along with pictures of Hernandez and heartbreaking personal notes.

Anyone with information about the accident is urged to call Sgt. Eric Nelson or Officer Jesse Chessere of the Woodbridge Police Dept. at 732-634-7700. All information will remain confidential, police said.
