Although friends and neighbors in his hometown of Ephrata, Pa., raised $50,000 to get him out of jail, Temple University senior Nicholas Hasselback may not drive or leave Lancaster County without court approval, a Philadelphia judge ruled Thursday.

Municipal Court Judge Joseph C. Waters Jr. approved the restrictions, agreed to by Assistant District Attorney Lynne O'Brien and defense attorney Andrew Gay Jr., before what was to be Hasselback's preliminary hearing in the April 11 hit-and-run that critically injured Temple law student Tony Foltz on the Parkway.

The hearing was continued until June 8 at Gay's request.

O'Brien moved for the restrictions after a bail hearing last Friday where Hasselback's friends unexpectedly raised the 10 percent in cash required to secure Hasselback's $500,000 bail.

O'Brien said one proposed restriction - that Hasselback remain in Philadelphia County pending trial - became unnecessary after Gay said Hasselback, 22, had withdrawn from Temple and would not graduate in May.

Hasselback, majoring in anthropology and economics, was also facing expiration of the lease on an East Falls apartment he shared.

O'Brien said Hasselback promised not to drive but could not surrender his driver's license because his wallet was stolen in an armed home invasion several months ago.

Gay, reached later Thursday, declined to comment.

Foltz, 25 - son of Richard W. Foltz Jr., a partner in the Pepper Hamilton law firm in Center City - was walking north on 22d Street about 2 a.m. April 11 when he was hit by a white Subaru headed west on the Parkway.

The driver did not stop. An anonymous tip led police the next day to the car, its windshield shattered, at Hasselback's East Falls apartment.

Foltz, who sustained severe brain injuries, remains in intensive care at Hahnemann University Hospital.
