2. Recent Cases: In Criminal Fatal Accident it is Not Unconstitutional that Driver Required to Stay at Scene. State v. Fisher 395 NJ Super. 533 (App. Div. 2007)

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:11-5., a driver involved in a motor vehicle accident that results in a death of another person is guilty of a crime if the driver fails to comply with the requirements of N.J.S.A. 39:4-129. The driver must either remain at the scene to provide his or her driving credentials to designated persons or report the accident and his or her identity to the nearest officer of the local police department, county police or the State Police. Compliance with those requirements would preclude prosecution under N.J.S.A. 2C:11-5.1.

Moreover, compliance with those requirements would not violate the driver's privilege against self-incrimination. As the United States Supreme Court recognized in California v. Byers, disclosure of name and address is essentially a neutral act and most accidents occur without creating criminal liability. Under the facts of this case, there was no reasonable bases for the driver to apprehend prosecution, inasmuch as the decedent had been crouching or lying near the middle of the road. If, under different facts, compliance with the statutory requirements did pose a legitimate risk of self-incrimination, it might be necessary to accord compliant drivers use or derivative-use immunity as outlined in State v. Patton.

4. Holly Jolly Christmas Lyrics.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow,
But have a cup of cheer.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
And when you walk down the street,
Say "Hello" to friends you know
And everyone you meet.

Oh, Ho, the mistletoe,
Hung where you can see,
Somebody waits for you,
Kiss her once for me.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
And in case you didn't hear,
Oh by golly, have a holly,
Jolly Christmas this year.

The Hash House Harriers again return to the woods and marsh of Edison. Hashing is not a race but a non-competitive group run which follows an off-road course laid out with baking flour. If you like trail running without the competition of a formal race, this will be a fun switch for you. This is a complex and different course through woods, grass, swamp and marsh.

Brought to you by the Rumson Hash House Harriers.
COST: NO FEE TO RUN. Bring a canned food donation for the St. James Food Bank.


$5.00 FOR THE POST RUN SOCIAL, HELD AT THE GREEN DERBY BAR. SITE OF THE "ON-ON" BREWS. A fun time is guaranteed! Wear old running shoes. You must be over 21 years old to participate. No awards are given and no times are recorded. A sense a humor is a must. Prizes and giveaways at the post race social!

Volunteers needed to help set up or point the way- even if you don't plan on running.

Discover great running paths. Tired of the same old neighborhood roads, traffic and bad drivers? Join the off-road runners for a great and unusual training run. See the swamps and wooded areas saved from development.
