ROBBINSVILLE, NJ (MERCER)–Around 8:18 pm the Robbinsville Township Fire Department, Hightstown First Aid and Mercer County Paramedics responded to the NJ Turnpike for a pedestrian struck. Radio reports indicate that the man suffered a broken leg after by being hit by a box truck and was found by a passerby at mile marker 63.5 north bound outer lanes of the highway. The man was placed in the back of the good Samaritan’s vehicle until help could arrive. It is still unclear why the man was found on the side of the highway in blizzard like conditions.

The man was transported to the Trauma Center at Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton and a “trauma alert” was called in route to the hospital. The man was expected to survive his injuries.

From observations on scene no truck was seen stopped near the scene.

NJ State Police reports that they are still investigating the incident.
