WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- A landscaper blowing leaves on a Washington Township street was flown to the hospital with head injuries Friday night after being struck by a car driven by a neighborhood resident, authorities said.
The victim was back-pedaling onto Robinwood Road with a backpack blower on when he was struck by a sedan, Lt. Richard Skinner told Daily Voice.
He was thrown onto the hood, then rolled onto the ground, witnesses said.
AirMed One flew him to Hackensack University Medical Center while the driver remained at the scene.
