New Jersey woman struck and killed by SUV

A 63-year-old New Jersey woman was struck and killed on Sept. 25 by an SUV as she crossed a street near the dry cleaning store that she owned and operated. The pedestrian accident took place at about 9:30 a.m. in New Milford.

The woman had arrived in the United States from South Korea with her husband 30 years ago with a few thousand dollars and hopes of pursuing the American dream. In the time since, the couple built a business that included the dry cleaning store and two nearby properties, which were rented to other local companies. She had only been a few years away from retirement. Her family placed a simple note on the door of their store apologizing to customers for any inconvenience as they closed for the day.

Efforts to save the woman's life were made by Emergency Medical Technicians who performed CPR at the scene. However, she was pronounced dead a short time later at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. The female driver of the SUV fully cooperated with authorities, and police say that the vehicle was owned by the State Department and bore diplomatic license plates.

Pedestrians are vulnerable when out walking; their safety often relies on the attentiveness of motorists. Victims of auto-pedestrian accidents may suffer catastrophic injuries that require prolonged medical treatment or physical therapy. A personal injury attorney may be able to help them pursue compensation for their medical expenses and pain and suffering. The attorney may also work to hold a negligent driver accountable for the accident.
