A male pedestrian was struck by a minivan at approximately 1 p.m. Saturday while walking near the New Hope-Lambertville free bridge.
Witnesses said he was evacuated to a nearby hospital with what appeared to be severe injuries after being struck by a minivan. The vehicle subsequently hit a utility pole adjacent to the New Jersey-bound lane of East Bridge Street.
The victim had reportedly been walking his dog, who was uninjured.
The Bucks County Accident Investigation Unit and other agencies are continuing to look into the incident, and there were no updates at press time on the man’s condition or identity.
The bridge was closed from 1 to 4 p.m. as New Hope Borough Police and the New Hope Eagle Fire Company responded at the scene. They were joined by the Solebury Township Police Department, Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, Lambertville Police Department, the Central Bucks Ambulance, and Lambertville-New Hope Ambulance and Rescue Squad.
