Beaten Driver's License Suspended at Time of Deadly Crash

View Comments ()



    Authorities say the man who was beaten after he struck and killed a woman on a New Jersey roadway was driving with a suspended license.

    Lakewood police say 26-year-old Juan Gregorio-Chacon hit 41-year-old resident Chandra Martin as she crossed Route 88 on Saturday. She suffered multiple injuries, including head trauma, and later died at a hospital.

    Police say the woman's relatives and friends witnessed the crash and attacked Gregorio-Chacon. He remains hospitalized.

    The Motor Vehicles Commission tells the Asbury Park Press Gregorio-Chacon's license was suspended in 2013 for unlicensed driving. He was eligible for reinstatement in December, but Sandy Grossman says he failed to pay the $100 restoration fee.

    No charges have been filed in the deadly crash.
