Police: Old Bridge woman killed in crash with garbage truck on Route 34
A 59-year-old woman was killed after colliding with a garbage truck in Old Bridge early Wednesday morning.
Old Bridge Township police say that Anastasia Arthur was exiting the parking lot of Future Pharmacy at the intersection of Spring Hill Road and Route 34 around 5:30 a.m. when she pulled out into the path of a Solterra garbage truck. Police say that the truck driver was unable to stop in time, and the two vehicles collided.
Arthur was critically injured in the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver was not injured.
The crash happened as parts of New Jersey were experiencing slick road conditions because of icy rain. But police say that it was not clear if the road conditions contributed to the crash.
