NORTH BERGEN, N.J. — A New York man accused of driving an SUV that crashed into a bus stop and killed a woman in New Jersey has turned himself in to authorities.
Hudson County prosecutors say 36-year-old Olvy Torres surrendered Monday and was due to be arraigned Tuesday. He’s charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident and authorities say more charges may be filed.
The crash occurred Sept. 26 in North Bergen. Authorities say Torres fled the scene on foot after the crash and didn’t try to help the victim.
The bus stop is in front of Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center. Authorities say the woman, 59-year-old Luisa Valdes of Union City, worked at a skilled nursing facility next to the hospital.
Torres’ attorney could not be reached for comment.
