Camouflaged hunter struck, killed on NJ highway

Posted: Updated:

SOUTHAMPTON, N.J. (AP) -- State police say a hunter wearing "very elaborate" camouflage was killed when two vehicles struck him as he tried to cross a southern New Jersey highway.

The Courier-Post reports the accident occurred around 5:20 a.m. Monday on Route 70 in Southampton. The man had a shotgun, a camouflage blanket and was dressed in leafy camouflage gear which made him less visible to drivers.

He was first struck by a car whose driver stopped, believing he had hit a deer. But when he saw a man's boot, the driver realized he had struck a person.

The driver saw an approaching tractor-trailer and tried to signal the driver to stop. But the truck hit the man and kept going.

When the truck driver arrived at work, he heard about the accident and returned to the scene.

No charges have been filed.
