OLD BRIDGE – A 34-year-old Staten Island man surrendered to authorities yesterday and was arrested on charges related to the hit-and-run fatality of Warren Wilmot, a 26-year-old resident of Old Bridge, on July 29, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan and Old Bridge Police Chief William Volkert announced.
Timothy D. Lubniewski was released on $75,000 bail after he was charged with leaving the scene of the fatality.
Lubniewski surrendered to police in Old Bridge after contacting Investigator Scott Crocco of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office in response to a press story about the fatality. Lubniewski’s vehicle, a 2007 white Range Rover, believed to be the vehicle he was operating at the time of the incident, was recovered from a Staten Island auto body shop on Tuesday, July 31. The circumstances surrounding the fatality are subject to the ongoing investigation.
Warren Wilmot was struck, at approximately 1:15 a.m., while walking on the shoulder of Route 34, Northbound, enroute to a WaWa. He was taken to Robert Wood Johnson Hosptial, where he was pronounced dead on July 29, at 4:22 a.m.
As the investigation is continuing, authorities are asking anyone with information to contact Police Officer Bulin of the Old Bridge Police Department at 1-732-721-4005 or Investigator Crocco of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at 1-732-745-4471.
As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charges against Lubniewski are merely accusations and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
