An Egg Harbor Township couple can rest a little more comfortably knowing that an arrest has been made in a scary situation they were involved in last weekend.

Ryan and Lori McHale were driving near the intersection of Tilton and Wrangelboro Roads in Hamilton Township last Saturday night when they were the victims of a hit-and-run accident.

According to Lori, "A Ford F150 gray/tan with black racing stripes down middle and black flames on sides (see pictures) hit us, then kept pushing us, then backed us and hit us again, backed up and took off. We followed him while I was on phone with Mays Landing dispatcher. He knew we were following him, he turned into development on Alexander Drive. Then he turned down a street with cul-de-sac sac."
Police tried to catch up with the driver, but called off a pursuit as it was going into residential areas.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
