HACKENSACK, NJ- According to Daily Voice, a 76-year-old resident of North Bergen was killed in a fatal pedestrian crash on Thursday night in Hackensack.

At approximately 8:30pm, Carol Ventura was in the crosswalk of the intersection of Summit Avenue and Passaic Street when she was hit by a vehicle. The 2021 Dodge Ram pickup truck was turning onto eastbound Passaic Street and had a green light.
