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”.

$50 bucks says: The truck #139 miraculously turns into truck #9. According to the story this guy said the passenger shuck his head, OK, can’t we have him identify this employee? This city employee probably doesn’t even have a drivers’ license; hence, the cover-up. I’ll add another $50 the city settles this out of court for @ 50k in installments (of course). They think the guy is “a walking law suit” because of his previous back injury. I’m telling you, these trucks are used as a taxi service as well. It’s disgusting and should be handled at once!! How can you just sit back on this? It’s an embarrassment. Things like this really annoy me. Sure there are people who are looking for a quick buck, but, this guy was really hit with witnesses. I’m sure a police officer can’t cover this up, it has to come from a “higher authority”. I really would like to have a follow-up about this story. This town has just become too damn congested. You can’t drive because pedestrians don’t follow the rules and you can’t walk because the drivers’ do not follow the laws and they wanted PEDI CABS. Are you effin’ serious? I have known many city employees in my day, and must say just walking by our City Hall is disgusting. (Not all) are rude, think they have persmission to do what they want, un-educated and really should have a dress code enforced. These people look like either street walkers or plain homeless people. We need a WHOLE NEW REGIME!!! I say 411 for manyor. On a serious note: I hope this gentlemen is Ok and hope he gets whatever it is he wants. 👿

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.
