Charges have been upgraded against an alleged hit-and-run driver in connection with an Aug. 15 collision that ultimately killed a Kew Gardens man in northern New Jersey.
According to media reports, Samuel Tarrant, 55, died of his injuries on Sunday night at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, NY, a little over a week after he was allegedly run over at a Ramsey, NJ intersection by Thomas Moylan, 27.
Moylan has been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident and causing a fatal accident while driving with a suspended license and is being held on $50,000 bond.
He was originally arrested on Aug. 17 and charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a suspended license.
Tarrant suffered a fractured skull, a brain hemorrhage and a broken pelvis in the crash.
According to reports, records show that Moylan’s license was suspended last year because he didn’t have insurance, and was suspended again because he failed to appear in court.
