Several readers wrote to us over the weekend to tell us about a horrible pedestrian accident near Stamna on Broad Street in Bloomfield on Saturday night.
Police confirmed today that the accident occurred around 10 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of Broad Street and Eaton Place.
The pedestrian, a 78-year-old man from North Arlington, suffered hand, head and leg injuries, the most serious of which was the leg injury, and was transported to UMDNJ, where he is in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries. As of yesterday, he had still not been released.
The driver of the vehicle was a 60-year-old female from New York City, who was driving north on Broad Street when the accident happened. She was not injured.
No summons have been issued and the accident is still under investigation.
