One Dead After Farmers Market Crash in NJ
Posted August 11th, 2014 @ 6:24am

A woman was killed in Hawthorne, New Jersey after a driver slammed into a Farmers Market yesterday.

Authorities said a pickup truck crashed into a barrier and tore through the market just after 2 o’clock in the afternoon.

The female victim was dragged for several blocks and was pronounced dead at the scene.  At least two other victims suffered minor injuries.

It’s unclear why the driver hit the farmers market and why the pickup truck didn’t stop.

The driver, James T. Woetzel, has been arrested for vehicular homicide and fleeing the scene of the accident, which resulted in the death of the woman. The investigation of why Woetzel crashed into the farmer's market is ongoing.
