A man was struck and killed last night on the New Jersey Turnpike while he was running across the lanes of travel.

According to authorities at 11:15 p.m. Cranbury Station Troopers were responding to a report of a disorderly person on a bus that was parked on the shoulder of the southbound outer lanes at milepost 78.7.

One minute later, troopers were advised of a possible struck pedestrian in the northbound inner lanes at the same locations authorities said.

When they arrived they found that the man, who had been reported by the bus driver as being disorderly, had left the bus and run across the lanes where he was struck by a passing motorist.
