A Jersey City Councilman was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident involving a bicycle.
According to public reports, City Councilman Amy DeGuise was driving her SUV on Martin Luther King Boulevard when she collided with a cyclist and continued driving. The incident was caught on surveillance cameras.
The video shows a cyclist standing up and walking out of an intersection. The video also shows that the cyclist appeared to have passed a red light at the time of the crash.
“I looked to my left and suddenly I heard ‘bar’. I was hit… I tossed and turned, and it really hurt. Luckily, the people around me were very kind to me,” Black said.
Black also commented on the allegations against DeGise.
“People of renown have fallen to the point of ignoring the law or whatever they call it demanding to protect and keep our streets clean, and that they do it themselves.” I couldn’t even, and it really upset me,” Black said.
