A Point Pleasant man has been charged with careless driving following an accident on Highway 88 on Sept. 23.
John R Mulhall, 91, was driving a 1995 Ford Taurus eastbound on Highway 88 around 10:14 a.m. Monday, when the vehicle struck 70-year-old Salvatore J. Catania, from Point Pleasant, who was crossing the highway from the north side of the roadway.
Catania sustained multiple serious injuries and was treated at the scene by the Point Boro First Aid Squad and MONOC paramedics, according to a prepared statement from Capt. Richard Larsen.
He was subsequently flown to Jersey Shore University Hospital. His condition was unavailable this evening.
Point Borough Officer Loren MacIver and Det. Michelle Hill had responded to the scene and are investigating.
