Prosecutor: Authorities Seek Assistance in Identifying Pedestrian in Fatal Accident

Officials are looking for the public’s assistance in identifying a male victim involved in a motor vehicle collision on Route 9 in Marlboro Wednesday evening, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said on Thursday.

Marlboro Police responded at 10:15 p.m. on July 11 to a report of a pedestrian struck on Route 9 in the vicinity of signalized U-turn north of Covered Bridge Road.

A 2001 Dodge Intrepid, traveling southbound in the right lane, struck an unidentified male who was travelling on foot in the area of the signalized turn.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:44 p.m.

Alisa Berkman, 56, of Manalapan, the operator of the 2001 Dodge Intrepid, was not injured.

Police are continuing with efforts to identify the pedestrian.
