A woman was struck and killed by a NJ Transit Bus outside a local shopping center Tuesday afternoon.
The unidentified woman was a few footsteps away from the Boscov’s front entrance at the Voorhees Town Center in Voorhees Township, New Jersey shortly before 2 p.m. when she was hit by the bus. Responding police officers performed CPR on the woman but she died from her injuries. Police are not releasing her name until her relatives are notified.
Witnesses told NBC10 the victim was an older woman who was carrying shopping bags at the time of the crash. The bus also had passengers on board.
“Right now the traffic unit is working with the criminal investigations bureau,” said Voorhees Township Police Captain Carmen Del Palazzo. “We’re interviewing any potential witnesses or video surveillance that might be at the mall or witnesses outside.”
The Voorhees Traffic Unit, Camden County Prosecutor’s Office and New Jersey State Police are all investigating the incident.
