A Northfield man has been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident early Saturday morning, acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Cary Shill said Wednesday.
Mathew Cademartori, 25, was traveling east on the White Horse Pike in Absecon when he struck Talmadge Franklin, 67, of Absecon, who was walking east, Shill said in a news release.
After striking Franklin, Cademartori left the scene, Shill said.
Cademartori was arrested Monday at his home and charged with leaving the scene of a fatal motor vehicle crash. He was sent to the Atlantic County jail pending a detention hearing.
