Rahway police identify pedestrian hit-and-run driver

Rahway police this morning identified the driver in a hit-and-run crash that critically injured a 22-year-old pedestrian late last night as a 64-year-old South Plainfield woman.

Charges hadn’t yet been filed this morning against Sylvia Magcamit as an investigation continues, Capt. Joseph Simonetti said.

Simonetti said Magcamit left the scene in her 2005 blue CRV after it struck Billy Morales Jr. as he crossed St. George’s Avenue at the intersection of West Scott Avenue at 9:51 p.m.

Morales suffered injuries to the head, chest, pelvic area, legs and other internal injuries, the captain said.

He was rushed to University Hospital in Newark.
