MAHWAH, N.J. -- A 67-year-old Mahwah woman headed to her parked car after getting off a bus Sunday night was struck by a Jeep as she crossed the street, township police told Daily Voice.
The 2008 Jeep Wrangler, driven by a 41-year-old township resident, struck the woman as she crossed Franklin Turnpike at Miller Road just after 6 p.m., Police Chief James Batelli said.
Officer Timothy Letavish found the victim in the roadway, he said Monday morning
She was taken to the Valley Hospital with head and other injuries, the chief said.
The driver told police he had the Jeep stopped at the red light, then turned left after it changed to green when it struck the pedestrian -- whom Batelli said was "in or near a crosswalk."
No summonses were immediately issued pending an investigation by Letavish, who is a member of the department’s Major Accident Response Team.
