Brian Hickey, a Philly.com video producer, Metro columnist, former managing editor for City Paper, and all around good dude is in a medically-induced coma after being critically injured Friday night in a hit-and-run in Collingswood, N.J.
The Metro's Brian X. McCrone is reporting that Hickey, 35, was struck by a car on Atlantic Avenue near the Collingswood PATCO station around 10:15 following a night out with friends. He was in intensive care at Cooper Medical Center in Camden, Hickey's wife Angela Klem told the paper.
“They left him for dead and luckily there was one neighbor who heard the screeching of the tires,” Klem said. “The resident saw the car but couldn’t identify it. Maybe if the driver has a conscience he’ll turn himself in.”
If anyone has information about the hit-and-run, please contact Collingswood Police at 856-854-1901, ext. 223.
