A Millville man has died of his injuries following an accident earlier this month in Vineland.
A 32-year-old Vineland man was driving a car west on Hance Bridge Road near Panther Road shortly after 11 p.m. on July 9 when he struck William K. Harris, 25, of Millville.
Police believe Harris was in the roadway for an unknown reason and said he was wearing non-reflective clothing. There is a minimal roadway shoulder of only a few inches width in that area, police noted in their report.
Harris was unresponsive when emergency responders arrived and was airlifted to a hospital for treatment.
He remained hospitalized until he died of his injuries on Tuesday, police said.
No charges have been filed against the driver, but the case remains under investigation.
Harris was walking home from work when he was struck, according to a manager at Eastlyn Golf Course and The Greenview Inn in Vineland, who created a GoFundMe drive to help with his medical bills.
Harris worked there and at the Double Eagle Saloon in Vineland, Dina Matias said in her fundraiser, which had collected more than $13,000 as of Friday afternoon.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Vineland Police Officer Agustin Santiago at 856-691-4111, ext. 4247.
