Pilesgrove Township, N.J. - Troopers from the New Jersey State Police Woodstown Station are seeking the public's help identifying the driver involved in a fatal hit and run crash that claimed the life of Chelsea Burns, 25, of Woodstown, N.J.

On Friday, October 17, at approximately 11:31 p.m., troopers responded to Alloway Road and East Lake Road for a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian.
