BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ – At approximately 10:25 PM on Wednesday April 4, 2018, the Burlington Township Police Department responded to the area of Route 541 and Bromley Boulevard for a pedestrian hit and run motor vehicle collision. Upon arrival, officers discovered that a 72 year old male from Burlington, NJ was walking across the southbound lanes of Rt. 541 when he was struck by a vehicle travelling in the left lane.
The male received significant injuries to include a fractured leg and numerous abrasions and lacerations throughout the rest of his body. He was treated on the scene by police officers, Endeavor Emergency Squad members and Virtua Paramedics prior to being transported to Capital Health Trauma Center in Trenton, NJ. He is currently listed in serious condition.
The preliminary investigation indicates that the male was struck by a red 2011-2014 Hyundai Elantra sometime between 9:30 pm and 10:25 pm, which is when a passerby discovered the male on the side of the road and contacted the police. The vehicle that fled the scene should have damage to its passenger side front bumper, passenger side fog light lens cover, and passenger side mirror.
