DEVELOPING: Pedestrian Fatally Struck by Car on NJ-18 in East Brunswick

East Brunswick

The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office has been notified of a crash that fatally injured a pedestrian Sunday morning. 

According to a preliminary investigation, police closed off NJ-18 near Lake Avenue to investigate reports of a crash with injuries around 3:30 a.m. 

When offices arrived at the scene, they found wires down on the highway after a collision that involved a pedestrian and a pole at that location. 

Police said a severely injured unidentified person was administered CPR at the scene before EMS rushed them to the hospital, where doctors pronounced the victim dead a short time later. 

The cause of the crash has not been determined at this time.
