GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — Police have identified the woman who was fatally struck by a car Monday afternoon after falling into the street at Aloe Street and New Orleans Avenue.

Mary Thompson, 56, was killed and her daughter, Elizabeth Thompson, 27, was seriously injured when the Egg Harbor City residents were hit by the vehicle, Officer Ron Gorneau said Wednesday afternoon.

Mary Thompson was pronounced dead at the scene. Elizabeth Thompson was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center for serious but nonlife-threatening injuries, police said. She was listed in stable condition Wednesday afternoon.

The driver of the vehicle that hit the Thompsons, Lynn M. Stadtmueller, 33, of Egg Harbor City, was traveling east on Aloe near New Orleans Avenue.

An autopsy was performed on Mary Thompson, but Gorneau was unable to release the cause of death, pending an investigation.

As of Wednesday, no summonses had been issued.

Gorneau is investigating the incident. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call him at 609-652-3705, ext. 5095.

Det. Ryan Hutton of the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office will take over the investigation once Galloway Police are done.
