Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk and Haddon Township Police Chief Mark Cavallo reported a Mount Ephraim man pleaded guilty Wednesday to a hit and run that took the life of a Blackwood woman.
Timothy Polijczuk, M/51, of Mount Ephraim, pleaded guilty Wednesday to Leaving the Scene of a Fatal Motor Vehicle Accident. He is expected to be sentenced to six years incarceration in a New Jersey state prison.
Polijczuk was driving on a suspended license in a blue Chevrolet truck with a refrigeration box mounted on its bed when he struck 67-year-old Joyce Putmon as she crossed the Black Horse Pike in Haddon Township on March 3, 2013. He admitted before Superior Court Judge Lee Solomon Wednesday that he fled the scene of the incident.
The victim was going from the Audubon Shopping Center to the bus stop when she was struck. Sentencing is scheduled for January 10, 2014.
