Hammonton, NJ (September 5, 2022) – New Jersey State Police officers are reportedly investigating a serious crash that unfolded in Hammonton and involved a pedestrian on August 26th.
At 10:15 a.m. on August 26, Hammonton Police Chief Kevin Friel said, officers responded to a report of a person being struck by a car in the 100 block of South White Horse Pike.
The first inquiry has shown that a 42-year-old man was struck and severely wounded. According to Friel, the victim suffered many injuries, including a fractured leg, and was taken away in an ambulance.
Because to the temporary closure of the White Horse Pike, traffic was temporarily redirected onto side streets.
According to Friel, the accident is still being looked into and no one has been charged thus yet. Friel said that Sgt. Jonathan O’Neil is the officer in charge of the investigation.
We wish the wounded victim a speedy and complete recovery, and they remain in our thoughts and prayers.
New Jersey Auto-Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Experts in traffic safety agree that the numerous new laws and procedures implemented in recent years by New Jersey’s towns and municipalities to increase pedestrian safety will be beneficial in the long run.
More than half of all pedestrian fatalities in five North Jersey counties this year have occurred in the last few months. Statistics from around the state have been rising, thus greater action is needed to protect the people of the Garden State.
According to the latest up-to-date statistics from the New Jersey State Police, our state saw its highest annual total of road deaths since 2007 and its highest annual number of pedestrian fatalities in more than three decades in 2021.
To rub salt in the wound, New Jersey’s State Police report that as of the end of December, 672 pedestrians had lost their lives in traffic accidents in the Garden State, making this year the worst on record. To put it another way, this is the largest number of deaths since 724 were recorded in 2007.
