A young male, a pedestrian, had been walking in the left, northbound lane of Route 1 in West Windsor just after 11 p.m. when he was hit by a motor vehicle, according to the local police. The motor vehicle’s impact sent the pedestrian into the center lane, where he was then struck by a second vehicle.
Both drivers — a 43-year-old from Morrisville, Pennsylvania, and a 35-year-old from Roxbury, Massachusetts —stopped and cooperated with police.
Mr. White was pronounced dead at the scene by the authorities.
Route 1 was closed for about three hours while the police investigated the incident, which took place less than a half-mile south of the Meadow Road overpass.
The New Jersey State Police reported that there were 558 fatal accidents in 2019. 176 of the reported fatalities were to pedestrians.
It has been reported that New Jersey is the 12th highest in the country for pedestrian fatalities caused by automobiles.
