Colorado man was captured on Schooley's Mountain Road Tuesday night.

A Colorado man fled a crash scene in Hackettstown Tuesday night after striking two parked cars, Hackettstown Police said.

Eric O’Loughlin, 41, was heading east on Route 57 in Hackettstown when he left the roadway and hit two parked cars in the Riverstar Diner parking lot, Sgt. Darren Tynan said.

Witnesses in the area said O’Loughlin fled the scene, first running into the diner, then into the Musconetcong River, and was subsequently captured in the Elastimold business parking lot on Schooley’s Mountain Road, Tynan said.

No injuries were reported, Tynan said.

My car was one of the two vehicles that this guy ran into. He has no insurance and guess who takes it on the chin by having to pay for the repairs to my car? Me! Lifes not fair......
