Authorities claim that a dissatisfied patron who was denied the last call at a bar in Jersey City got into an SUV and then backed it into employees before fleeing the scene.
The accident that occurred on Saturday night, February 11 resulted in two employees of Taqueria Downtown on Grove Street being sent to the hospital with injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening, according to a spokeswoman for the City of Jersey City named Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione.

The event started a few minutes before 11 o’clock at night, after the bar had already proclaimed that the final call had been given. The patron became irate and began to yell at the employee who was working.
The police report that this was followed by a violent altercation that took place outdoors with another guy and a female.

According to Wallace-Scalcione, “The three individuals then rushed into a vehicle and backed into two restaurant workers, the side of the store, and also another vehicle.”
While the workers were treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening, the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident rejected medical attention at the scene. The investigation is still going on at this time.
