A man has been sentenced to 364 days in the Passaic County Jail for striking a woman and leaving the scene of an accident, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Joshua Dumeng, 28, of Paterson, pleaded guilty to third-degree leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury on January 29.
Dumeng admitted that on December 9, 2019, he was driving a blue 2004 Acura TL in the area of 24 Mill Street, when he struck a 62-year-old Paterson woman. He knew he struck her, but still left the scene without rendering aid.
The woman suffered serious bodily injury in the incident.
Dumeng was sentenced on Friday by Passaic County judge Sohail Mohammed. The judge also imposed a five-year probation and a two-year driver’s license suspension.
The judge ordered him to turn himself in to the Passaic County Jail on May 7 to begin serving his sentence.
