THEY SHARED the same name, the same blood, and on Monday night, Allen "Steve" Briscoe shared a similar tragic fate as his nephew.
Briscoe, 66, was driving down 30th Street in Camden Monday night when he allegedly struck a pregnant, 16-year-old girl with his 2004 Ford F-150 near Berkley Street, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office said. The vehicle struck the girl at a low speed, the Prosecutor's Office said, and she suffered "very minor injuries" despite being knocked to the ground.
Aleem Mayes, the girl's 18-year-old boyfriend, started an argument with Briscoe, though, then punched the former Campbell's Soup employee in the face despite Briscoe explaining that he hadn't seen the girl in the road, authorities said. Briscoe was knocked to the ground, confused and barely conscious when police arrived. He died later at Cooper University Hospital from a brain aneurysm, the Prosecutor's Office said.
