PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Police have arrested a man with a suspended driver’s license on charges of leaving the scene of an accident that killed a teenager on a bicycle in Paterson.

The Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office alleges 34-year-old James Reinhardt of Paterson was driving north on Beech Street when he struck the 16-year-old at the Oak Street intersection on Monday night. The teen died at a hospital a short time later.

Prosecutors did not release the teen’s name.

Reinhardt is charged with knowingly leaving the scene of a fatal accident, endangering an injured victim and causing death while driving on a suspended license.

It is not known if he has a lawyer who can comment on the charges.
