UPGRADED CHARGES IN CONNECTION WITH FATAL FORT LEE HIT AND RUN

 

Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal announced today that charges against CARMEN LOMBARDI (DOB: 10/24/1975; single; and employed as a vehicle inspector) have been upgraded to Leaving the Scene of a Fatal Motor Vehicle Collision in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:11-5.1, a second degree crime, and a new complaint summons was issued to him earlier today.  LOMBARDI was previously charged with Leaving the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Collision Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1.1, a third degree crime, in connection with a hit and run accident that took place yesterday morning at the intersection of Lemoine Avenue and Bridge Plaza North in Fort Lee.  The 57-year-old female accident victim succumbed to her injuries last night while receiving care at Hackensack University Medical Center, which resulted in today’s upgraded charges.  LOMBARDI’s initial appearance will still take place on November 3, 2017, at 8:30 a.m. in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, N.J.  The charge against LOMBARDI is merely an accusation and he is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
