Pedestrian Struck by Truck on Route 206 in Princeton

A female pedestrian was struck by a delivery truck while crossing Route 206 in front of 958 State Road just before 1 p.m. this afternoon, police said.

The pedestrian, Erika Romero, 36, was hit while she was walking across the northbound lane of Route 206.  She was struck by the truck’s front grille and bumper as the truck turned left when exiting a nearby gas station.  The delivery truck was operated by Daniel E. Smith, 26, of Plainsboro.

Romero suffered a broken left wrist and head trauma.  She was stabilized by medics at the scene and transported by the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad to Capital Health Systems at Fuld for further treatment. Her injuries do not appear to be life threatening, police said.

The truck driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation. Police have not charged him with any violation so far, but the investigation is ongoing. Route 206 was closed for about a half hour because of the accident.
