Two-year-old girl killed by hit-and-run driver on Route 1 in Woodbridge

A 2-year-old girl was killed by a hit-and-run driver on Route 1 in Woodbridge Monday.

Cecilia Cromwell lived with her grandmother in an apartment complex in Rahway. Officials say she had been staying with a neighbor overnight and at some point walked out on her own. Police say Cecilia made her way from the complex to Route 1 in Woodbridge. They add that she was all alone when the accident happened.

Authorities are investigating how the child got out and how she got so far. A security camera at the complex shows that Cecilia left by herself. Police in Rahway and Woodbridge are working with the Middlesex County prosecutors office to locate the car involved.
