LYNDHURST, NJ – A man is facing charges after crashing a stolen vehicle at a gas station and seriously injuring the teenage passenger on Sunday morning.
According to Daily Voice, 18-year-old Bryan L Hernandez was driving a stolen 2019 Honda Civic when police officers saw the car and began a pursuit at about 8:30 a.m. North Arlington officers gave chase on River Road but when the suspect surpassed speeds of 100 miles per hour, they terminated their pursuit.
The suspect continued onto Riverside Avenue then lost control while apparently attempting to turn on Kingsland Avenue Bridge near Lyndhurst Diner. The vehicle flew into a concrete support pillar at an Exxon station.
The female passenger, a 16-year-old, was transported to a local hospital for treatment, where she remained on Monday in stable condition.
Hernandez was immediately arrested and is being helped on charges of child endangerment, vehicle assault, eluding, and other offenses.
