ROSELLE - Police are asking for the public's help in locating the person responsible for a deadly hit-and-run in Roselle.

Robert Rodriguez, 42, was killed when his taxi was struck from behind over the weekend at the intersection of East Second Avenue and Poplar Street.

A viewing for Rodriguez was held at the Zevallos-Scrocki Funeral Home in Perth Amboy Wednesday night.

Surveillance video from a private home shows a white, 4-door Ford F-150 speeding away from the scene moments after the crash.

Robert Rodriguez was father of a 7-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy. He had been driving cabs for his family business for five years and was studying to become an American citizen.

The vehicle involved in the crash should have extensive front-end damage.

Police say Rodriguez' cab crashed head-on into a tree. Rodriguez, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died on the way to the hospital. His passenger in the back seat was wearing a seatbelt and was not hurt.

"All indications are that the driver did not slow down and continued at a very high rate of speed toward Elizabeth," says Roselle Police Sgt. Brian Barnes.

Drivers from Union Checker Cab paid their respects at the funeral home.

Rodriguez' body will be flown back to the Dominican Republic on Thursday.
