Hit and Run in Marlboro Leaves Freehold Resident Holding the Bill

The accident happened on Oct. 13 outside Damon's Grill on Route 9.

Freehold resident Kristina Glowzenski was traveling northbound on Route 9 in Marlboro when she was involved in what became a hit and run accident.

A male driver hit the back of Glowzenski's Toyota Camry in front of Damon's Grill on Route 9 Northbound in Marlboro, and took off once Glowzenski said she wanted to call the police.

"He was trying to get around the stop and go traffic that happens on the weekends," Glowzenski said. "When he hit me, he got out of his car and insisted there was no damage to any cars, and stood in front of my door blocking me from exiting."

By the time Glowzenski found her phone, which had flown around her car due to the impact, Glowzenski said the male driver then became irritated and left.

The male driver, in a 90's model black Toyota Rav 4 or Honda CRV, had no visible license plates according to a township police report. Glowzenski said he was wearing sunglasses, a camouflage colored baseball hat and was tan. He had a window cling on the back that said "no room."

Upon impact Glowzenski said her head slammed into her steering wheel then quickly snapped back, an injury she is not being treated for.

"Even though the damage is minimal, it is frustrating that I have to pay for that and my medical bills," she said.

Anyone with information regarding this accident is urged to call the Marlboro Township Police Department at (732) 536-0100.

I hope Ms. Tipps seeks attention. Sadly I know of too many situations of "being fine" after an accident, and days or even weeks later, painful symptoms appearing. Sadly, when you see "uninsured motorist" coverage on your insurance bill, you are paying for coverage in such hit-and-run situations.

How come I see your posts whenever there is a story regarding car accidents?

It doesn't even matter if you did find this person. My spouse was in a hit and run accident in the Holland Tunnel. She got the license plate # of the car that hit her. Port Authority police didn't even care and had no desire to pursue the driver. Last time I checked, it was illegal to leave the scene of an accident. Geico (our insurance company) determined we were not at fault and was able to run the plate and find the driver, who also happened to be a Geico customer (out of the FL office). Lucky us! 5 months later, Geico denies our claim, claiming that the driver of the vehicle that hit us was not the policy holder. How do they know this if it was a hit and run? Insurance is such a scam! Since our case was transferred to Florida Geico (why, I don't know...), they sided with the person who hit us.

What "Screw geico" stated is sadly a fact of life. The insurance company isn't your friend. Don't admit fault after an accident, even an innocent "I'm sorry" can be taken by an insurance carrier to be admitting fault. I don't believe in using the internet to disparage, bad mouth, or spread unfounded allegations. Therefore, all that I will state is that the practices of some insurance carriers force accident victims into hiring an attorney, no matter how minor the accident, simply to receive what is due to them under the terms of their policy which they paid for with their hard-earned dollars.
