The incident, witnessed by other motorists, occurred at Maple Avenue near West Front Street at around 4 p.m., said Captain Darren McConnell.
That’s when the man, whose identify was not released, followed his former girlfriend from a nearby bank and attempted to speak to her when she was stopped at the traffic light, McConnell said.
The driver, a 17-year-old girl from Bradley Beach, pulled away when the light changed, unaware that she had run over her ex’s foot, McConnell said.
Though the incident was initially reported as a hit-and-run, witnesses and the Fair Haven man confirmed that there was no intent to harm, and no charges were filed, McConnell said.
The victim was treated and released from Riverview Medical Center, he said.
