Description 3 MONTH INVESTIGATION LEADS TO HIT-AND-RUN ARREST On June 10, 2023, at 9::00 p.m., Bensalem Police responded to a hit-and-run crash on Route 1 north in the area of Neshaminy Interplex. Upon arrival, they found a pedestrian, Jason Jacobs unresponsive in the roadway. He was transported to the hospital with serious injuries to his head, face, arms, ribs, and spine.
The driver of the striking vehicle got out of his car, looked at the victim, then fled the scene northbound on Route 1. Investigators spent months pouring over surveillance video and license plate readers when they discovered that the white Hyundai had a temporary PA registration. An investigation into the registration info revealed that a police department in New Jersey conducted a traffic stop on the same vehicle a few days prior to the hit-and-run crash.
During that traffic stop, the driver of the vehicle was identified as Jacques Mamy, 38 years old from Trenton, New Jersey. Investigators entered the vehicle into the National Crime Information Center(NCIC) and on August 6, 2023, Trenton Police located the 2011 Hyundai Sonata and secured it for evidentiary purposes.
Upon executing a search warrant on the vehicle, damage was found that was consistent with striking a pedestrian. Numerous other search warrants were executed on the ride-share company and cellular phone data. These search warrants showed that Jacques Mamy had 3 ride-share jobs on June 10, 2023, and was in the area of the crash at the time the pedestrian was struck.
Investigators then went to Jacques Mamy's home in Trenton, New Jersey to conduct an interview. During the interview, Jacques Mamy admitted to being the driver of the 2011 Hyundai Sonata that struck and severely injured the pedestrian. On Thursday, September 7, 2023, Jacques Mamy surrendered to Bensalem Township Police on charges of Accidents Involving Death or Personal Injury and Duty to Give Information and Render Aid.
He was arraigned by District Justice Joseph Falcone and was released on his own recognizance on $200,000 unsecured bail.
