Woman Struck and Killed By Car on Route 46

Parsippany Police and the Morris County Prosecutor's Office are investigating incident.

A 38-year-old woman was struck and killed Thursday night on Route 46 near the Burger King and the intersection of Baldwin Road, police said.

According to Sgt. Yvonne Christiano, the woman was walking from the east to west side of Route 46 when she was struck by a vehicle shortly before 8 p.m. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, Christiano said. The woman's identity was not immediately released, pending the outcome of the investigation, Christiano said.

The woman was struck by a 2008 Nissan operated by a 34-year-old Bayonne man, who was traveling westbound on Route 46, Christiano said. The man's identity was also not immediately released, pending the outcome of the investigation.

A portion of Route 46 was closed Thursday night as police investigated the incident.

Christiano said the accident remains under investigation by the Parsippany Police Department and the Morris County Prosecutor's Office.

Isn't there a huge walking overpass there?

Dan - you are probably thinking of Denville, where there is a huge walking overpass. There's no walking overpass in Parsippany.

Pedestrian crosswalk flags might help. http://www.slcgov.com/transportation/Pedestrian/pedFlags.htm

Pedestrian crosswalk flags might be helpful. Might not have helped in this case if the woman was not at a crosswalk. http://www.slcgov.com/transportation/Pedestrian/pedFlags.htm

what is adding to this problem too is the street lights that are not being fixed, these poles cost a thousand dollars to support a non functioning light ,there are so many lights out all over ,beverwyck rd too. at one time last year all the ones on west bound side of rt 46 were out from the home depot to rt 46 and beverwyck.lighting sure be checked isn't there anyone that has that job? and people who have the street lights in front of their homes should call the power company to let them know their street needs the light fixed, you could help save the lives lost in these accidents.
