A Toms River woman was killed after being hit by a car while she was crossing the street Friday night, authorities said Saturday.
Gina Russomanno, 57, was pronounced dead at Community Medical Center in Toms River as a result of multiple injuries from the accident, said Ralph Stocco, spokesman for the Toms River Police Department.
Russomanno, of Coolidge Avenue, was walking north on that road at 7:13 p.m. when she was hit as she was crossing Bay Avenue, Stocco said.
He said she was struck by a Toyota Tacoma driven by a 19-year-old township resident who was traveling west on Bay Avenue.
Police responding to the scene found Russomanno unconscious lying in the road, he said. They began to administer life-saving measures before she was rushed to the hospital, he said.
