BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ – At approximately 9:16 PM on Sunday, June 18, 2017, the Burlington Township Police Department responded to the area of Route 130 South and Devlin Avenue for a pedestrian hit and run motor vehicle collision. Upon arrival, officers discovered that a 53 year old female from Burlington, NJ was walking across the southbound lanes of Rt. 130 when she was struck by a passing vehicle.
The female received significant injuries to include head trauma, facial injuries, fractures to her lower extremities, and numerous deep abrasions. She was treated on the scene by police officers, Endeavor Emergency Squad members and Virtua Paramedics prior to being transported to Cooper University Trauma Center in Camden, NJ.
