Police in Toms River are asking for the public’s help in identifying a driver involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash.
Authorities say the crash happened early Sunday morning on Route 70 near Massachusetts Avenue. The victim has been identified by relatives as 28-year-old Sierra Fisher – a mother of two.
A witness told police that Fisher was struck by a dark Ford Explorer SUV that was between the years of 2003 and 2009. Police say the vehicle should have significant damage to the front passenger side, damage on the hood and broken headlights.
Authorities say that the witness told officers that the male driver of that SUV got out of the vehicle to check on Fisher. But instead of staying at the scene or calling for help, he got back in and drove away.
Fisher was taken to Southern Medical Center but was pronounced dead.
The driver is described as a tall, thin, white male, with blonde or reddish hair.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Anthony Carrington of the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Vehicular Homicide Unit at 732-929-2027, ext. 3257, or Toms River Police Officer Cpl. Robert Westfall at rwestfall@trpolice.org, or the Toms River Township Police Detective Bureau at 732-349-0150.
