Car Strikes Manalapan Gas Station Attendant

The man complained of pain in his leg but refused medical attention, police said.

A Millstone man struck a gas station attendant at the Citgo Gas Station on Route 33 in Manalapan during the evening hours of Wednesday, Nov. 16 and then fled the scene, according to the Manalapan Police Department.

Ptl. Matthew Meyler responded to the gas station in reference to the incident. The attendant was a 55-year-old Manalapan man; he complained of pain in his left, but refused medical assistance, police said.

I think she had no cash, either way Karma is a beach. This is just another prime example of people who just don't care. If you come to this country to live and want to be accepted, then stop building walls and start building relations with the community.

Thanks for the reply's. Just like my daughter there are a lot of kids that work for very hard for a few dollars and go to school at the same time, she did not have any cash and thought the gas in the car was enough untill she got home. Bad judgement yes-But would you want me to treat your child by laughing at them and saying get out-I am the type of person that would have given her a gallon of gas,let her use her $5 and not worry about the dollar cost for using the debit card. Are we a society of caring beings or selfish money hungry animals? The gas station was lit and safe-why did she have to move down the side road untill help arrived"Where would you want YOUR child?. thanks

Women drivers never have enough cash for gas.

Again, not wanting to diminish the good work your daughter is doing, the incident serves as a good life lesson about responsibility...If you are an adult (and she is, if she's driving) and you go out driving with no cash and only $5 on a debit card for resources, that's not a good idea...Fortunately you were there to help her this time. Of course, none of this minimizes the uncalled for cruelness of the attendent. Everywhere we read, during this time of storm recovery, we learn about the kindness of strangers going out of their way to help others. This attendent's callous reaction to your daughter's situation was absolutely uncalled for.
