YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A North Bergen bread delivery truck driver was indicted by a grand jury in Hackensack yesterday in the hit-and-run death of a Carlstadt business owner.

Joseph Eizaguirre, 23, fell asleep at the wheel of a Schripps European Bread Company around 4:30 a.m. last July 26 on Paterson Plank Road/Route 120, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli told CLIFFVIEW PILOT at the time.

The truck struck and killed Boro Atanasoski, a 63-year-old Macedonian immigrant who lived in Brooklyn and owned Faith Environmental, Inc., a hazardous materials and asbestos removal contractor on Stanley Street in East Rutherford.

Eizaguirre, who has remained free on $105,000 bail, was driving while on the revoked list at the time, the indictment returned yesterday revealed.

The indictment charges him with “driving recklessly and causing the death” of Antanoski while on the revoked list, leaving the scene of an accident and failing to assist a physically helpless victim unable to care for himself.

Molinelli’s Fatal Accident Investigation Unit handled the investigation.
