Prosecutor: Garbage truck driver who struck, killed pedestrian in Bayonne had no license

The Hudson County prosecutor has filed charges against a garbage truck driver who allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian in Bayonne earlier this month.



Officials say Daniel Peek, 44, was driving without a commercial driver's license when he hit Bayonne resident Caleb Serrano on Feb. 3.



Serrano was hit while trying to walk in the intersection of Avenue C and 55th Street just before 5 a.m. Officials say Peek stayed at the scene following the incident.



Peek was charged with causing a death while being an unlicensed driver. He also faces several traffic violations.
