FLEMINGTON, NJ – A 73-year-old man was killed as he tried to cross Route 202 this morning around 4:54, according to Raritan Township Police Lt. Kevin Donovan.

The victim was wearing dark pants and a dark shirt, Donovan said.

Police are withholding the victim’s identity pending notification of his next of kin.

The man was hit by a 2013 Ford van driven by Howard J. Huber, Jr., 58, of Iselin, who had a green light at the highway's intersection with Voorhees Corner Road, according to Donovan.

Huber was driving southbound on the state highway at the time of the accident and the victim was crossing the highway on the south side of the intersection where there is no crosswalk, Donovan said. There is a marked crosswalk at the opposite side of the intersection with Voorhees Corner Road, police said.

The death occurred as authorities have tried to limit such accidents. After a spate of pedestrian accidents last year, Flemington officials engaged HART Commuter Information Services to conduct the Street Smart  safety and education campaign for drivers and pedestrians.

Just last Tuesday, a man was seriously injured in front of ShopRite when he was hit by a car southbound on Route 202-31.

Donovan said today's accident remains under investigation and that no charges have been filed.

Det. Sgt. Ed DeFilippis of the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office said more details will likely be released later today.
