Following an extensive investigation, the Camden County Police Department has identified and arrested the driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash with a motorcycle late last month.
Joseph Robinson, 61, of Camden, was arrested Tuesday on the 1500 block of Norris Street by members of the Camden County Police Department and U.S. Marshals Regional Fugitive Task Force. Robinson was identified by detectives as the driver of a car that struck a motorcycle on the afternoon of Tuesday, Aug. 30, at the corner of Mount Ephraim and Sayres avenues.
The impact caused the death of the motorcycle operator while Robinson fled from the scene in his vehicle.
Robinson is charged with Leaving the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Accident Resulting in Death, 2nd Degree, and was remanded to the Camden County Jail.
“I would like to commend our detectives and the members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force who worked hard to gather evidence that led to the identification of this suspect, and then to ensure that he was arrested without incident,” said Chief Gabe Rodriguez.
On August 31, 2022, the Camden County Police Department asked the public for information about a vehicle that was involved in the accident.

That motorcyclist was my brother in law Willie Anthony Michael Cooper. He was not a bad guy… he was hard working (masonry) church going family man… that went to gas up his bike to take my sister out on their last ride as bf and gf… they were supposed to get their marriage license the next day. A pillar in our family gone in seconds.
My sincere condolences to you, your sister, and your family. Anne Forline
