Woman injured after being struck by vehicle in Newton

NEWTON, NJ (Sussex County) – A Newton woman was injured after she was struck by a car Monday morning, according to Newton Police Lieutenant Robert Osborn.

At 8:46 a.m., police responded to the intersection of  Mill Street (County Route 519) and Water Street (Route 206) for a report of a pedestrian that was struck by a motor vehicle, Osborn said.

Through a police investigation, it was determined that Francis Jennings, 62, of Sparrow Bush, NY was operating a 2003 Hummer eastbound on Mill Street and had stopped at the red traffic signal at the intersection of Water Street, Osborn said.

Jennings failed to observe Isabel Chub, 35, crossing Mill Street in a northbound direction within a marked crosswalk and struck her, Osborn said.

Chub suffered a complaint of pain to her left leg and right buttocks area  but refused medical treatment, Osborn said.

Jennings was issued summonses for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk and careless driving, Osborn said.

Assisting at the scene was the Newton First Aid Squad.
