58-Year-Old Man Killed In Camden Hit-And-Run On Memorial Day

Posted: Updated:
CAMDEN, N.J. - Camden County police need your help to find the driver who allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian.

The victim was struck around 3:30 p.m. Monday on the 1500 block of Pershing Street and rushed to Cooper University Hospital but died of his injuries.

Police have now identified the victim as 58-year-old Lawrence Stark.

Witnesses say the driver stopped briefly after hitting stark, but then drove away.

The description police are releasing is either a black or dark blue SUV that likely has some kind of damage.

Anyone with information on this incident is urged to call police. Tips can also be provided by email to ccpotips@ccprosecutor.org or by texting to CCTIP.

This occurred in the Whitman Park area of Camden, within about a minute's walk of Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital. Haddon Avenue runs along here, and so does PATCO's High-Speed Line. Commuters would be able to look out the window and see what happened on Pershing Street.
