A 53-year-old Wallington pedestrian was hospitalized with a head and leg injury after being struck over the weekend, authorities said.
The victim was crossing Union Boulevard when she was hit by a leased Mercedes Benz C30 sedan driven by a 49-year-old borough resident around 9 a.m. Saturday, Police Chief Camello Imbruglia said.
The driver told police she was making a left from Wallington Avenue and didn’t see the pedestrian in the crosswalk, Imbruglia said (NOTE: A quarter of all pedestrian crashes reportedly occur during left turns).
The victim was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center, the chief said.
An investigation was continuing, he said.
