A New York man who died after a car struck him and his father in New Jersey last year has been identified by police.
Police said they recovered a severed pelvis from the scene.
Police Chief Joseph D’Amico said on Monday that Daniel Rizzuto, 47, had suffered a spinal cord or a traumatic spinal injury and died in the accident.
His father, Daniel Rochon, 51, was hospitalized for six weeks in the hospital with a fractured skull and other injuries.
The car, a 2008 Toyota Camry, struck Daniel R. in a residential neighborhood in the Hudson Valley, police said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
The driver, a 42-year-old man from New Jersey, has been charged with reckless driving.
Daniel Rizuto, a graduate of St. John Vianney High School, was a baseball coach for the New York Mets.
Daniel was a father of four, according to his father.
Daniel had two children with his wife, who died of cervical cancer in 2016, police told the Associated Press.
He had a daughter who had leukemia.
Daniel’s father is a firefighter.
Police told the AP that Daniel was involved in the baseball team and coached a youth league team.
Daniel attended St. Johns, where he was a member of the baseball squad.
The police department’s internal investigation into the accident is ongoing, and D’Ammico said the investigation was under way.
