A USA TODAY Network reporter was struck and killed by a vehicle as she walked along a road in New Jersey early Sunday morning.

Lindsay Ireland, 26, was a reporter for North Jersey Media Group, providing coverage to the Morristown Daily Record, The (Bergen County, N.J.) Record and NorthJersey.com. A graduate of Columbia Journalism School, Ireland was hired by the Daily Record one month ago. 

“Lindsay was an energetic and talented reporter at the beginning of a promising career," said Daniel Sforza, editor of The Record. "Her death is a tragic loss for our newsroom and for the people of Morris County, who would have benefited from the coverage she was poised to provide. We are deeply saddened."

The fatal accident occurred at about 2 a.m. EDT on eastbound lanes of Route 10 between Canfield Avenue and Dover-Chester Road in Randolph, Detective Christopher Giuliani said. 

The accident was witnessed by an officer responding to a report of a person walking  in traffic on Route 10. Ireland was wearing dark clothing at the time she was struck by the vehicle, Giuliani said.

Randolph police continue to investigate. No charges have been filed.
