Howell Township Man, 83, Charged in Fatal Hit-and-Run

A Howell Township octogenarian risks five to 10 years in prison if he’s convicted of the  hit and run that left a bicyclist dead on Herbertsville Road earlier this month.

Abraham Chapnick, 83, of Ramtown Road, turned himself in today, was charged, and posted $150,000 cash bail, according to information from the office of acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Grammiccioni.

He’s facing a second-degree count of knowingly leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident resulting in death, authorities said.

Charles McHugh, 58, died after being hit from behind while biking around 2 PM on March 12.

Investigators piecing together information were able to identify the car as a 1995 black Lexus LS 400 sedan, and the driver as Chapnick, authorities said.

Officers assigned to the case seek additional details. Prosecutor’s Detective Eric Kerecman can be reached at 800-533-7443. Howell Township Patrolman Matthew Cherney can be reaced at 732-938-4111.
