Police have released the names of those involved in Saturday's accident that killed an area transient.


The victim has been identified as 43 year-old Larry Furbush. Police say the driver of the vehicle is 48 year-old Darren Matheson of New Brunswick.


Authorities say it appears he was driving to the Union Street Hannaford when he hit Furbush on Vermont Avenue, without realizing it.
