A New Jersey trucker faces multiple charges after he was alleged to have been involved in a hit and run crash early this morning in Clay Township. CICIL A. LAWRENCE, age 69, of Trenton, New Jersey was driving a 1994 Peterbuilt truck tractor pulling a loaded semitrailer on North Clay Road at Hopeland Road, when during a turning movement, a wall, stop sign, and mailbox were struck. The tractor trailer combination then proceeded away from the initial impact scene and struck a bridge on Hopeland Road causing undetermined damages to the structure. NLCRPD officers stopped the vehicle and issued several citations including Careless driving and a charge for the damages to unattended property (Hit & Run). In addition, the trailer was placed out of service and required towing from the scene due to the damages from the impact.
