A Villas, N.J. resident was transported to the hospital after a hit and run motor vehicle accident, police said.

Matthew Bland, 27, was allegedly driving a black Chevrolet Camaro down Spaulding Avenue at a high rate of speed on Friday at 1:15 a.m. when he crossed Andover Road and struck a tree and parked vehicle in a yard.

Police responded to the intersection of Spaulding Avenue and Andover Road but Bland allegedly fled the scene in a second vehicle.

Police were dispatched to a Sunrise Boulevard home at 3:07 a.m. for an intoxicated male, Bland, with a severe leg injury. He was then identified as the driver of the Camaro, police said.

The Lacey Township First Aid Squad transported Bland to Jersey Shore Trauma Center.

The incident is under investigation and charges are pending.

I think Matt was wrong in what he did. But a loss of license ok thats fine. Community service yes. But jail absolutely not. People need a second chance. We all know that.

yes he was.. but he left the scene of an accident.. and that in my book is a FLIGHT RISK.. I don't TRUST HIM or her.. so as far as I am concern a few years in Jail will do him some good.. with the reminder of his broken leg.. will also be a constant reminder too.. as well as his arrest record... he screwed up big time..
