Three-month investigation leads to hit-and-run arrest

Jacques Mamy, 38, of Trenton, has been arrested for the hit-and-run crash that sent a pedestrian to the hospital with serious injuries

A man has been arrested for the June 10 hit-and-run crash that occurred on Route 1 north in the area of Neshaminy Interplex.

Upon arrival on the scene at 9 p.m., Bensalem Police found pedestrian Jason Jacobs unresponsive in the roadway. He was transported to the hospital with serious injuries to his head, face, arms, ribs and spine. The driver of the striking vehicle got out of his car, looked at the victim, then fled the scene northbound on Route 1.

Investigators spent months pouring over surveillance video and license plate readers, when they discovered that the white Hyundai had a temporary PA registration. An investigation revealed that a police department in New Jersey conducted a traffic stop on the same vehicle a few days prior to the hit-and-run.

During that traffic stop, the driver was identified as Jacques Mamy, 38, of Trenton, New Jersey. Investigators entered the vehicle into the National Crime Information Center and, on Aug. 6, Trenton Police located the 2011 Hyundai Sonata and secured it for evidentiary purposes. Upon executing a search warrant on the vehicle, damage consistent with striking a pedestrian was found.

Numerous other search warrants were executed, which showed that Mamy had three ride-share jobs on June 10, and was in the area of the crash at the time Jacobs was struck. Investigators went to Mamy’s home in Trenton to conduct an interview, during which Mamy admitted to the incident.

On Sept. 7, Mamy surrendered to Bensalem Township Police on charges of Accidents Involving Death or Personal Injury and Duty to Give Information and Render Aid. He was arraigned by District Justice Joseph Falcone and was released on his own recognizance on $200,000 unsecured bail.
