Linden, NJ Pedestrian Accidents

NY CBS Local reported that early Friday morning on December 1, a New York City woman was killed and her companion was injured when a car struck them while they were in a crosswalk in Linden, NJ. The woman, age 44 died at the scene, and her 54- year old companion was taken to University Hospital in Newark. He had serious injuries. A few weeks ago, the couple had moved to Linden from Long Island City, Queens. The driver remained at the accident scene and cooperated with the police. People who witnessed the accident from a gas station said they thought the car was speeding. However, police have not confirmed that speed was a factor in the fatal crash and have not charged the driver.

This accident happened two blocks from another pedestrian accident, which took place on Thanksgiving morning. However, the driver who struck the pedestrian in this accident was intoxicated.

This particular area has been the scene for a number of pedestrian accidents. According to a local businessman, during the summer, another woman was killed on the same road. The road is well known by locals for speeding cars and heavy traffic during morning business hours.
