Pedestrian struck – by CITY vehicle!

203 Washington St., a pedestrian was hit by a white city pickup truck (vehicle number 3510). The truck left the scene, and police are now asking for the man to return (since they knew the truck ID number.)

Apparently they’re having a tough time ID-ing that number.. but witnesses are certain the truck said “City of Hoboken” on it.

Update: They’ve now said it is vehicle number “139”.

Hoboken411, how do you upload photos?

This is a photo of a City of Hoboken Parks Department white pick-up truck so that we know what they usually look like – though not the one mentioned in the story. I think this one is #138 (not #139).

So I’ll watch for #139 around town as I go about my business, will bring along a camera. Does anyone know how the vehicles are set up, how many drivers operate them daily, weekly? Guess this operator might possibly be injured or on vacation.
