Default WF Linden, NJ elementary school teacher, 35 dies 11 days after negro hit-and-run


Arrest made in fatal hit-and-run of beloved New Jersey elementary school teacher

LINDEN, New Jersey (WABC) -- Authorities announced they have made an arrest in connection to the fatal hit-and-run of a beloved elementary school teacher in New Jersey.

A Linden man was charged Wednesday for multiple serious crimes in connection with the hit-and-run killing of 35-year-old Meghan Crilly that took place two months ago.

Police say 39-year-old Ibn Collins tried to hide his involvement by removing the damage to his vehicle in an effort to conceal the crime.

Authorities revealed that on Jan. 20 just before 2 a.m., Crilly and three friends were crossing North Wood Avenue at its intersection with St. Georges Avenue in Linden when Collins -- driving a red 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee -- allegedly struck her with his vehicle.

Police said Collins did not slow down or stop following the impact, but continued through the intersection.

The investigation later revealed that Collins had been drinking on his birthday at a Kenilworth bar before driving back to Linden that night.

Crilly, a second-grade teacher at Beechwood Elementary School in Mountainside, suffered multiple serious injuries as a result, and she was pronounced dead at a local hospital 11 days later.
