A Monroe, N.Y. man who was struck by a car while crossing westbound on River Road at Hopper Avenue Saturday afternoon has died, police said.
Igors Cernenoks, 49, was pronounced dead Monday at 6:30 a.m., Detective Lt. Michael Uttel said.
Uttel said he knew Cernenoks had undergone surgery at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center on Saturday night to reduce swelling in his brain, but hadn't heard any additional information until Monday morning when he was informed Cernenoks had died.
Cernenoks was in the crosswalk about halfway across River Road Saturday afternoon when he was hit by a northbound vehicle driven by 46-year-old Fair Lawn resident Staci Callea, Lt. Bob Kneer said. Surveillance footage shows the collision's impact threw him all the way back to the eastside curb in front of B&B Liquors.
Uttel said surveillance footage of the crash showed Cernenoks never looked as he was crossing the street and appeared unaware that the car was coming toward him. Callea, a Radburn resident whose 15-year-old daughter was in the car with her, also said she never saw Cernenoks, Uttel said.
She was issued two summonses: one for careless driving and one for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
