NEW BRUNSWICK - Police say they've caught the man who mowed down a woman on her way to church in New Brunswick.

Officials say Brian Clements, 50, surrendered himself, his driver's license and his car, a 2012 Ford Edge that was seen in a surveillance image. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

Authorities released the surveillance image last week as they searched for the person who fatally struck Silvia Reyes-Ramos and kept going. Reyes-Ramos was hit as she walked to her neighborhood church.Investigators say they searched through very recent purchases of the Ford model, which led them to Clements. Clements, a Manalapan business owner, is now facing charges of first-degree aggravated manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Clements is free on bail tonight. The judge, however has issued a warning: if Clements is caught driving, he'll lose the money and go to jail.
