Police tell the Times of Trenton that the truck identified as the vehicle that struck the man was backed up into a jughandle on Market Street near Barlow Street. The man would panhandle for money in the street according to several other homeless men in the area.

No charges have been filed in the case as an investigation continues into the incident.
