Man Charged in Temple Student Hit and Run

Student still in critical condition after Sunday's incident

Philadelphia Police have charged a man in connection with the hit and run of a law student early Sunday morning.

Nicholas Hasselback, 22, turned himself over to authorities Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Hasselback is accused of hitting Tony Foltz as he crossed the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at 22nd Street just after 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

Foltz, 24, was rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital in critical condition. He was forced to undergo surgery Monday to repair a badly injured leg and skull fracture.

Police said they had identified a person of interest in the case after discovering an abandoned white Subaru in East Falls Monday. The car had significant damage to its windshield and matched eyewitness descriptions, according to authorities.

Hasselback is charged with several crimes including Aggravated Assault, Reckless Endangerment and Leaving the Scene of an Accident.
