Arrest made in hit-and-run that killed teen
Police have arrested a Paterson man with a suspended driver's license on charges of leaving the scene of an accident that killed a teenager riding a bicycle in Paterson.
The Passaic County Prosecutor's Office alleges 34-year-old James Reinhardt was driving north on Beech Street when he struck the 16-year-old at the Oak Street intersection on Monday night. The teen died at a hospital just before 7:30 p.m. that same night.
Family members have identified the teen as Javier Burgos.
Reinhardt is charged with knowingly leaving the scene of a fatal accident, endangering an injured victim and causing death while driving on a suspended license.
