YOU READ IT HERE FIRST : A 63-year-old Teaneck man was released without bail after surrendering to authorities yesterday in a hit-and-run crash that seriously injured a Bergenfield man last week.

Car pieces found at the scene matched a 1998 Volvo S70 sedan driven by Daniel Dawkins when it hit 32-year-old Brian Gilligan as he tried to stop traffic for a backing truck on Woodbine Street around 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said this afternoon.
