YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A pedestrian visiting relatives from out of town suffered a broken leg after he was struck by a car driven by an intoxicated hit-and-run motorist while walking near Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck tonight, police said.

The 55-year-old victim was walking around a snow-covered sidewalk on Chadwick Road away from the hospital when he was struck by the Ford Econoline box truck near Cedar Lane just after 3 p.m., Sgt. Patrick Forrest told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight.

He was taken to the hospital while police working a road construction detail stopped the van three blocks away.

The driver, 54-year-old James Cook, is likely facing criminal charges in addition to DWI and leaving the scene of an accident with injury, the sergeant said.

Cook remained at police headquarters tonight.
