STAFFORD TOWNSHIP — Police are working to find a motorist that struck a scooter rider Wednesday morning.

Jose Cruz-Jaimes, 27, of the Manahawkin section of the township, was riding at approximately 7:48 a.m. when he tried crossing the intersection of Route 9 and McKinley Avenue. An SUV was making a right turn onto Route 9 South from McKinley Avenue, where it hit Cruz-Jaimes before the driver fled, police said.

Cruz-Jaimes was flown to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Division, following the crash, police said, without providing information about his condition.

The SUV is possibly a newer-model Ford Edge that may be fitted with tinted windows. Damage may also be noticeable on its front driver fender and door, police said.
