A woman on foot in Woodlynne, Camden County Wednesday night was hit by a cop car and died from her injuries.
The state is reportedly investigating the accident, which took place just before 11 p.m. Wednesday night on Mount Ephraim Avenue, according to Patch.com.
The woman was crossing Mt. Ephraim Ave. when a Metro Camden County patrol car struck her, reports 6abc.com. The officer behind the wheel of the car immediately stopped, according to the Attorney General's Office, and called for medical assistance. She was reportedly pronounced dead on the scene just minutes later.
Speaking with 6abc.com, a neighbor talked about how dangerous that part of Mt. Ephraim Ave. can be, especially at night, saying, "Unfortunately, it's not enough lighting in this area for people to be able to see you, for pedestrians to walk across the street if you don't have anything bright you are going to get hit."
Mt. Ephraim Ave. at the accident scene near Woodlynne Ave. was closed for nearly six hours for processing. The Attorney General will continue to investigate, per state law. The age and identity of the victim is not yet available.
