One Car Hits Two Pedestrians at Meadowlands Stadium


Posted on Jul 12, 2011

A 23-year-old driver is accused of hitting two pedestrians in the parking lot of the New Meadowlands Stadium after a sold out soccer match on Saturday night June 18, 2011.

New Jersey state police report that Angel Gonzalez was driving in parking lot J-11 shortly before 11:30 p.m. that evening when he hit one pedestrian with the front left of his vehicle. Then, Mr. Gonzalez reportedly put his car in reverse and hit 40-year-old Ricardo Lazaro and a parked vehicle with no passengers inside.

Mr. Lazaro was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with serious injuries. He was reported to be in critical condition in the days following this New Jersey car crash. The first pedestrian did not report the accident and remains unidentified.

Mr. Gonzalez is accused of fleeing the scene of the crash and was stopped by state troopers on the southbound New Jersey Turnpike.

Authorities say that the results of Mr. Gonzalez's toxicology reports will take about 8 weeks to come back. He has already been charged with assault by auto and leaving the scene of an accident with serious bodily injuries. He was being held at Bergen County jail on $30,000 bail.

We express our best wishes to Ricardo Lazaro and the other pedestrian who may have been injured in this crash for a full and fast recovery from their New Jersey accident injuries.
