Hamilton Township Police are investigating a serious accident this morning that injured a person who was standing on Route 40.

The accident happened just before 9:00 this morning. 39-year-old Iyana Davis of Mays Landing was on the shoulder of Route 40 at approximately milepost 44.5 waiting to cross the road when she was struck by a westbound vehicle. A vehicle, driven by 70-year-old Caesar Niglio, Jr., of Northfield left the roadway and struck Davis, who was thrown about 25 feet.

Niglio stated that he left the roadway when he swerved to avoid a truck that had stopped suddenly in front of him.  He lost control, struck Davis, then struck a bus shelter.

Davis was treated on the scene by Galloway Rescue Squad and flown by Southstar to AtlantiCare City Division. Niglio was transported to Mainland for evaluation.

Hamilton Township police continue to investigate the accident and charges are pending at this time.
