Police ID pedestrian killed in Trenton

The pedestrian who was killed by a motorist Sunday night has been identified as 61-year-old Rodney Taylor.

A vehicle struck Taylor in the 400 block of Chambers Street around 10:20 p.m. Sunday.

Officials say the victim was in the middle of the westbound lane when the vehicle, which was traveling west, struck him.

“The victim was in the roadway when a vehicle struck him and continued without stopping,” Lt. Stephen Varn said.

Taylor suffered severe injuries and later died at the hospital.

This is the second fatal hit-and-run accident to occur in Trenton this year.

In March, 39-year-old Lea Pringle was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in the 600 block of North Olden Avenue. A 17-year-old unlicensed city girl was arrested last week and charged with death by auto and related offenses in connection with Pringle’s death.

Anyone with information about Sunday’s fatal hit-and-run is asked to call police at 609-989-4155.
