Police Still Searching for Vehicle in Fatal Herbertsville Road Hit-and-Run

Vehicle was last seen traveling towards Brick on Herbertsville Road

Brick Township police are assisting Howell police in an investigation into a fatal hit-and-run accident on Herbertsville Road Wednesday afternoon.

At about 2 p.m. Wednesday, a bicyclist was fatally struck on the road, which runs from Howell through Brick. Charles McHugh, 58, of Spring Lake was riding near Blewetts Recycling when he was struck from behind, police said.

The car is described as a 1990s black four-door Toyota with silver accents on the fender. The passenger's side headlight should be damaged by the impact with yellow paint transfer from the bicycle. The window and passenger's side A pillar were also likely damaged.

The vehicle was last seen traveling south on Herbertsville Road towards Brick.

The Brick Township Police Department is asking residents to report any unusual activity in their area such as vehicles parked and covered, vehicles parked in backyards of a residence, vehicles left in parking lots for the past few days or vehicles that are no longer at a particular location.

Anyone who may have information regarding the vehicle and driver that fled the scene is asked to contact Officer Jay Lampiasi at 732-262-1150.

How do you hit someone in broad daylight and just keep on going? I'm sure they will get caught.....they always do! He should be charged with murder.

The cops tied up traffic for a long distance on Thursday by slowly handing out flyers asking for witnesses of the incident. Instead of inconveniencing hundreds of people on Herbertsville Road, why not put a portable electric signboard there -- as other towns do, like the "silver alert" messages on highway signs?

It's amazing that the Police are doing what they can to obtain any info they can in this horrible tragedy. Yet, people still find a way to blame the police for something. Way to go "Martin".

Yes Martin, its a big inconvenience for the police to actually show they care and want to find this creep by physically getting out of their cars and talking to our citizens instead of just throwing up a blinking sign which half the people won't even read and Hoping someone knows something. Really....
