Jean Schweitzer has identified by authorities as the victim in a pedestrian collision that occurred in Newark on October 18. Ms. Schweitzer was apparently on Thornton Avenue to the west of Peachtree Avenue prior to 7:15 p.m. when she was struck by a vehicle and later died from her injuries. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and a DUI is not suspected by authorities. Nevertheless, the collision is being investigated and witnesses are being sought. Ms. Schweitzer was 65-years-old.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
