MAYS LANDING — A 54-year-old Pleasantville man was found lying dead in the road early Wednesday, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office said.

At 1:03 a.m., Pleasantville police responded to a report of a body in the road at the Black Horse Pike and Chestnut Street, Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner said in a news release.

Rickie Jackson’s body was found lying in the outer westbound lane of the pike, Tyner said.

Jackson had a medical bracelet on his wrist indicating he had recently been released from a hospital, Tyner said.
