Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and Verona Police Chief Doug Huber announced today that the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide/Major Crimes Task Force and Verona Police Department are investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck and killed by an automobile.

At approximately 8:45 p.m. last night, Marie Trusits, 54, of Verona was struck by an automobile on the 300 block of Bloomfield Avenue in Verona. That is the stretch of road on the eastern side of town between Malvern Place and Church Street. She was transported to University Hospital and was pronounced dead a short time later.

No charges have been filed at this time. The investigation is active and ongoing.

  1. Maybe a crossing light is In order up that way – like the one they have by Hillside and the park.

  2. There are 2 lights up there, and intersections with crosswalks. We need to better inform pedestrians that jaywalking is in fact dangerous. Crosswalks are put in place for a reason!

    Drivers, never yield to jaywalkers! Reason is, if you yield, and drivers coming from behind don’t see the jaywalker, the pedestrian has a false sense of “clearance” and the other drivers will think you are making a turn. They will go around you as the pedestrian is crossing, thus increasing the likelihood of another tragic fatality like this one.
