People who frequently drive along Route 4 say pedestrians often walk along the highway, sometimes on the shoulder or curb. "There's no sidewalk on Route 4," says Aliza Ilan, of Englewood. "There's almost like a bicycle path, it's a very narrow line. And that's where they're walking, right beside to the line."

Drivers say many of the people are headed to or coming from bus stops. 

All eastbound lanes of the roadway were closed while police investigated the incident.
