Pedestrian Struck by Car in Chatham, Hospitalized

The driver was issued a summons for failing to yield to a pedestrian.

A Harrrison woman was hospitalized after she was hit by a van on Feb. 1, Chatham Borough Police spokesman Kevin O'Shea said.

The van was driven by Leon Tomaskowicz, 64, of Butler, who was issued a summons for failure to yield to a pedestrian.

The woman, Beatriz Valeiro, 45, was crossing Main Street with a green light when she was struck by a van turning onto Main Street from Fairmount Avenue, O'Shea said in a statement released Monday. Patrolman Roy George responded to the accident at Main Street and Fairmount Avenue just before 2 p.m.

Valeiro was transported to Morristown Medical Center by the Chatham Emergency Squad for treatment.

Headline is not ambiguous. Last sentence says she went to Morristown Hospital. Why the question?

The title originally said something like - Pedestrian struck by car hospitalized in Chatham. I come to this site because it has local information, but they need to do a much better job at proof reading the articles.

Chatham is a town full of white people.

I'm not arguing with that assessment, but what does it have to do with this story?
