BAYONNE -- Peter A Hannalla, 24, of Bayonne was charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of marijuana, and assault by auto after allegedly striking a 21-year-old Jersey City man near 21st Street and JFK Boulevard at about 8:13 p.m. on Jan. 18, police said.
The Jersey City pedestrian apparently stepped out from between two cars on the eastern side of JFK Boulevard where he was allegedly struck by Hannalla’s 1994 two-door white Acura traveling northbound. The impact knocked the pedestrian into the southbound lane, and according to police, he was struck by another vehicle, which fled the scene.
The police said Hannalla appeared to be under the influence, and a search allegedly found a plastic bag full of green vegetation. He was transported to Bayonne Medical Center for a blood test.
The victim was transported to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment for leg and arm injuries resulting from being struck by two cars.
