Toddler struck, killed by truck in Woodward Township

A 2-year-old Linden girl, whose name police did not release, was killed after being struck by a pickup truck at 5:15 p.m. Saturday on Harvest Moon Park, near Youngs Road, in Woodward Township.

Stephen M. Folse, 21, of Louisiana, was leaving his parking spot while the girl was in front of the vehicle. Folse allegedly could not see her due to the height of the truck’s bumper, according to state police.

The undercarriage of the truck hit the victim at a low speed, police said, fatally injuring her.

Also responding to the call were Jersey Shore EMS and Woodward Township Volunteer Fire Co.

Police released no further information on the accident.
