NORTH BERGEN — Authorities say a woman was struck and killed when an SUV crashed through a bus stop in North Jersey.

They say the driver then fled the scene and remains at large. The driver apparently was alone in the SUV.

The accident occurred around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday in North Bergen. The bus stop is in front of Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center.

It wasn't immediately clear how many people were at the bus stop at the time or many people may have been injured. The name of the deceased woman has not been disclosed.

The roadway was shut in both directions while authorities investigated.

Hudson County prosecutors are leading the investigation.
