A woman was hospitalized Tuesday after being struck by a motorist on Warren Road around 6 p.m., police said.

The driver had just turned left onto Warren from Plaza Road when she struck the pedestrian, whom police said was walking home from the Radburn train station.

The victim complained of head pain, but her injuries are not considered life-threatening, police said. She was transported to the trauma center at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson.

Police are still piecing together the circumstances of the accident and could not yet comment on how it occurred.

That's not the only problem. People putting on high beams and blinding you plus these new white lights with a blue tint.

Pedestrians and drivers alike need to be more careful. These folks coming off the train walk right into the street without looking and drivers should be vigilant about going slow. But neither will happen and more lights won't solve the problem.

I too have had a couple of near misses because of the lack of adequate lighting and drivers failing to heed the pedestrian crossing signs.. Unfortunately, drivers in Fair Lawn, unlike those in Ridgewood, almost always ignore the crosswalks and pedestrian crossing signs. There seems to be little police enforcement of the speed limit or pedestrain crosswalks on Plaza Road.

This is one good reason why the housing project across the road from this unfortunate accident should not be built. With hundreds more cars in the mix during rush hour, motorists will seek detours on this very road and others nearby, streets which are not all have sidewalks either partially or completely, and where residents walk. This is only unfortunately going to increase the number of accidents. I urge the Radburn Association to carefully consider this project in light of the harm and damage to citizens and residents of Radburn and Fair Lawn, that will occur do to the traffic increase that this project will add.

That ship has already sailed. If you want to stop it, your going to need to raise 10s of millions $ to buy the land, IF the developer is willing to do so. Or God forbidden burden the taxpayers with even more debt as if we don't have enough as is.
