Harrison Police arrested a Newark man on Friday for a hit-and-run accident and marijuana possession.
Emmanuel Sanchez caused the accident on Harrison Avenue and Frank E. Rodgers Boulevard and left the scene on foot.
Sanchez gave police the driver’s license of his friend while attempting to conceal his true identity.
He told them he uses his friend’s identification because he does not have a valid New Jersey license.
The 20-year-old admitted to police that he was driving his friend’s car and was afraid because the victim in the other car yelled when he hit her.
Officers also recovered a small clear bag with green and brown vegetation suspected to be marijuana.
Sanchez was issued a summons for hindering apprehension and possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana.
