WEST MILFORD, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a New Jersey man seriously injured in a hit-and-run boating accident last month has died from his injuries.

State police said Tuesday 72-year-old Edwin Lane died Saturday of head and other injuries suffered in the Labor Day crash.

The Record reports (https://bit.ly/2dVYRJ1 ) Lane, his wife and another West Milford couple had dined at a restaurant at the north end of Greenwood Lake and were on the way back to his dock when a powerboat smashed into them from behind. The other vessel became airborne and went over Lane’s boat before fleeing the scene.

Robert Roon was also seriously injured in the crash and was released from a hospital last month.

State police say no arrests have been made in the crash and the incident remains under investigation.
