Preliminary investigation revealed the death of a 40-year-old female who was a resident of Trenton, NJ, and involved two vehicles operated by residents of North Brunswick, NJ, and Trenton, NJ. The decedent was operating a mini motorized bike in the center lane of U.S. Route 1 South, when she was struck by a Ford operated by the resident of North Brunswick.
