WESTFIELD, NJ — A woman hit by a car while crossing at South Avenue West and Summit Avenue Thursday night was taken to the hospital for head and neck injuries, police said.
Officers responding to multiple 911 calls found the woman lying unconscious in the roadway shortly after 7:05 p.m., Police Chief Christopher Battiloro said. She regained consciousness at the scene, Battiloro said.
Members of the Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad along with Atlantic Health System paramedics transported the woman to University Hospital in Newark, Battiloro said.
The driver of the vehicle struck her while she was crossing South Avenue West, he said. The driver remained on the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, Battiloro said.
“No persons are being identified at this time, as the investigation of this incident remains ongoing by the Westfield Police Department’s Crash Investigation Unit,” he said Friday.
Battiloro said police had not filed charges. The Union County Police Department and the Union County Sheriff’s Office, which both responded to the scene, are assisting in the investigation, he said.
Thursday’s crash follows a fatal pedestrian-involved crash at West South Avenue and North Scotch Plains Avenue that occurred June 5, according to police.
