Hoboken police and fire blotter: 2/8/2011

Hoboken crime and fire action: February 8, 2011

An ongoing list of various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day for Tuesday, February 8, 2011. This post may be updated and “bumped” periodically.

  • 11:28pm: Passed out in car
    Reports of “two females passed out in a car near 340 Sinatra Drive…” Well, not sure if they’re drunk passed out, or just tired from another grueling day of work. But at least they’re not operating the car!
  • 7:36pm: Theft of Property
    A resident phoned HPD to report stolen property from the garage area at 415 Newark Street.
  • 7:25pm: Two parked cars struck
    9th and Bloomfield – reports of “two parked vehicles struck…” Hmm. Wonder if any car-sharing companies are behind this…(jk)
  • 7:10pm: Woman struck by car
    A pedestrian was stuck by a car at 5th and Washington. She’s conscious, but sitting in the middle of the street “bleeding from the face.”

More updates to come…

Alpuj makes very good points. Cars without a protective arrow sign uptown sometimes just keep on turning like they own this town or have explosive diarrhea. Happened yesterday. It was my turn to cross about 5 times. Stupid cars just kept on turning the corner without having the right of way… probably ’cause no one’s keeping tabs on them.

Hope the truth of this matter comes out.

I witnessed this accident and the women crossing the street was in the wrong. She crossed after the light had changed and she wasn’t looking up while she crossed. The car had the light and was turning onto Washington. She was not in the crosswalk and just happened to be in area of the street that was darker than the rest of the street. The driver immediately stopped the car and ran over to the women who was sitting up and screaming/crying. I hope the pedestrian is ok but I feel for the driver and his passenger!

Interesting to hear an eyewitness account, but I have to admit that I read it with caution. You seem to favor the driver’s point of view with a little more persuasion than a casual observer. I have no objection to that though, I’m only sharing my impression of your thoughts. In fact, as a driver I could not be more sympathetic if this girl did walk out, head down, in the shadows. It’s really scary driving here – especially at night – because people just walk right in front of cars like it’s no big deal.[quote comment=”203190″]I witnessed this accident and the women crossing the street was in the wrong.

I do not favor the driver at all. I do not know the driver nor could I tell you if the driver was a man or women (though I believe it was a man but not certain). I was waiting to cross Washington on 5th (on the corner where the real estate agency is) and looking at the oncoming cars. The light was red on Washington and the driver was coming up 5th making the turn. I do not drive and walk wherever I need to go. I’ve seen my share of reckless drivers but just believe this driver is one of them. I just feel bad because this was an accident that could have been avoided.

need to edit last line…I’ve seen my share of reckless drivers but just believe this driver is NOT one of them.

and that is an example of walking and typing gone bad 😳 [quote comment=”203258″]I do not favor the driver at all.

Massachusetts plates. Of course.

Hope the victim gets herself checked out and turns out OK.
