NORTH BERGEN, N.J. (AP) - Authorities in New Jersey are searching for a New York man who they say was driving an SUV that crashed into a bus stop and killed a woman.

Hudson County prosecutors say 36-year-old Olvy Torres is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident. They say he fled the scene on foot after the crash occurred around 6:45 a.m. Tuesday in North Bergen and didn’t try to help the victim.

The bus stop is in front of Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center. Authorities say the woman, 59-year-old Luisa Valdes of Union City, worked at a skilled nursing facility next to the hospital.

No other injuries were reported in the crash. Authorities have not said how many people were at the bus stop when the crash occurred.
