The video, obtained by the Department Of Transportation, shows the vehicle one block away from where the accident occurred. The video surveillance was captured at the intersection of Madison Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard, and the accident occurred at Kennedy Boulevard and Clifton Avenue.
Traffic and Safety Officer David Silberstien tells TLS the video is being enhanced by the Ocean County Prosecutors office in order to obtain the plate number from the vehicle.
The vehicle is a light colored 2006-2007 Jeep Liberty, as earlier determined by Silberstien based on evidence from the scene. The vehicle, which has a tire on the back, could be seen entering the bottom left of the video screen at the 7 second mark.
The 17 year old girl remains in critical but stable condition at Jersey Shore Medical Center, Silberstien says.
Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Silberstien at 732-363-0200, extension 5387. TLS.
