Camden man struck by hit-run driver dies

Posted: July 25, 2014

A Camden man died at Cooper University Hospital on Tuesday, three days after he was struck by a van in East Camden, authorities announced Wednesday.

Alfredo Siguenza-Trejo, 39, had been in critical condition since the accident on Saturday, around 9:20 p.m. on 27th Street near High Street.

Police said Siguenza-Trejo was entering his parked car when a vehicle hit him. The vehicle - thought to be a white van - then fled down 27th toward River Avenue.

On Wednesday, a 54-second video, uploaded to YouTube by the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, revealed some details from the incident.

The video, taken by surveillance cameras, shows two cars unrelated to the incident moving in opposite directions. About 10 seconds later, the van comes down the street.

Later in the video, the van is seen driving away and, police said, leaving the scene. The van has its taillights on and passes a bus moving in the opposite direction before disappearing in the distance.

Authorities in Camden first released images of the van on Monday. One image showed the van, headlights on, driving down the street. The van, authorities said, likely had front-end damage.

On Wednesday, the Prosecutor's Office released more details, saying the van could be a Ford Econoline made between 1983 and 1991.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Camden County Prosecutor's Office Detective Douglas Rowand at 856-225-8514.
