A serious head-on collision between two vehicles in East Windsor this weekend resulted in 4 injured occupants, one of whom was only 12 years old.
East Windsor Lieutenant Christopher Jackson announced that the car accident occurred at the intersection of Old Trenton and Princeton-Hightstown roads at approximately 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 25th.
Among the two vehicles, one was driven by 69-year-old East Windsor resident Mehri Vesali and the other was driven by 55-year-old Monroe resident Linda Preville-Koken. The initial crash occurred while Vesali’s vehicle was traveling southbound on Princeton-Hightstown Road and Preville-Koken’s vehicle was traveling westbound on Old Trenton Road, after which Preville-Koken’s vehicle struck a traffic signal pole.
Following the crash, Vesali and her passenger, Paraveneh Ghodsi, as well as Preville-Koken and her passenger, a 12-year-old whose identity remains undisclosed, were transported to Trenton’s Capital Health Regional Medical Center to receive medical treatment. Vesalia and her passenger reportedly sustained minor injuries, while both Preville-Koken and her passenger suffered head injuries.
As it stands, members of the East Windor Police Department’s Traffic Safety Unit and Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office’s Serious Collision Response Team are conducting an investigation of the circumstances surrounding the accident.
