A Sussex County woman was airlifted to the hospital after she was struck by a car while crossing Route 57 in Warren County Wednesday evening, police said.

Penelope Taylor, 66, was attempting to cross Route 57 E. in Washington Township when she was struck by a 41-year-old Phillipsburg man driving a 2004 Pontiac Vibe westbound shortly after 6:05 p.m., police said.

An initial investigation determined that Taylor was not using a crosswalk while crossing the road, authorities said.

Taylor, of Franklin, was airlifted by NorthStar to St. Luke’s Bethlehem Campus with unspecified injuries, police said.

Route 57 E. was reopened by 9 p.m.

The investigation is ongoing, police said.
