UPDATE: The death of a popular Clifton woman struck while crossing a Clifton street late last year was ruled an accident, records show.

Teresa Toyco, 55, was crossing the street in a torrential downpour at Clifton and Colfax Avenues in the late afternoon of Nov. 26 when she was struck by a 2004 Ford Explorer, the accident report says.

An off-duty police officer found Toyco unconscious in the middle of the street and began efforts to save her life, it says.

Toyco was brought to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

The driver, Pina Nazario, 52, remained at the scene, the report says.

No charges were filed or summonses issued following an investigation, records show.

Born in Lima, Peru, Toyco was extremely popular in the area, particularly at Blink Fitness in the Clifton Plaza on Route 46, where she worked.
