CLARK, NJ – Local authorities have released pictures of a vehicle that killed a man in Clark earlier this week and are hoping to use them to identify a suspect.
According to Patch.com, the red or maroon pickup truck struck 82-year-old James Leinbach on Raritan Road and Clarkton Drive around 6 a.m. on Tuesday. The victim was a resident at an apartment complex nearby. He was a hit by a car that was eastbound on Raritan Road and traveling toward Central Avenue.
Leinbach died from the injuries sustained in the crash.
Police have released pictures of a pickup truck that is red or maroon and is a Chevrolet S-10 or a GMC Sonora from the years 1994-2004.
