Princeton Woman Injured in Single-Vehicle Car Accident

Police in Princeton NJ are investigating a traffic accident that resulted in a local woman being hospitalized.

According to authorities, the 56-year-old victim was driving her 1997 Ford Expedition on Mercer Street near Hale Drive when she lost control of the vehicle and skidded off the road.

The SUV ultimately came to a stop when it struck a large, uprooted tree on the side of the road.

Sometime later, emergency responders arrived at the scene and found that the woman was trapped inside the vehicle. The emergency responders eventually removed the woman from the SUV.

Police said that the driver suffered minor injuries in the accident. After the driver was extricated from the vehicle, she was transported to University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro, where she received medical treatment for her injuries.

In addition to causing bodily injuries to the driver, the accident also resulted in extensive damage to the front end of the SUV.

Police had to shut down Mercer Street for roughly one hour after the accident. Once the woman was taken to the hospital and the debris was removed from the street, police reopened the road for traffic.

Princeton police indicated that the accident is currently under investigation. At this time, the driver has not been charged with reckless driving or careless driving.

Police Investigate Fatal Hit-and-Run Accident in Bensalem, PA

Pennsylvania State Police continue to investigate a fatal accident on I-95 near Bensalem that killed a New Jersey woman.

The investigation is a top priority for police. As a result, authorities are searching for the driver of a late 1990s or early 2000s black sedan they believe caused the fatal accident.

While police conducted the investigation earlier this week, drivers along I-95 were subject to lengthy delays.

The victim was a 44-year-old mother of three from New Jersey. According to authorities, she had just dropped off her daughter and granddaughter at their home in Bensalem, PA. She then got onto the highway in order to beat the rush hour traffic.

Police said that the victim was talking to her husband on speakerphone while she drove her 2013 Jeep Liberty back to New Jersey. She apparently told her husband that a hostile driver had intentionally served toward her when she tried to merge onto I-95. The fatal accident occurred a short time later.

According to witnesses, another vehicle cut off the victim’s Jeep and then slammed on the brakes.

Tragically, the victim lost control of her Jeep after being forced to suddenly decelerate. The Jeep went airborne and rolled over a number of times.

The Jeep reportedly continued to drive south on I-95 after the accident.

Meanwhile, the victim suffered catastrophic head injuries as a result of the accident. She was taken to Aria Health’s Torresdale campus in Philadelphia, where she died a short time later.

Although PA State Police are investigating the accident, they have not yet identified a suspect. That’s because the accident occurred at the beginning of rush hour, meaning that there weren’t many witnesses.

So far, the few witnesses to come forward have only been able to provide a generic description of the vehicle. Police are urging other individuals who witnessed the accident or its aftermath to please come forward with information.

If the suspect is eventually identified and apprehended, they could face a number of very serious criminal charges, including Vehicular Homicide and Leaving the Scene of an Accident.

Car Reportedly Hits Pedestrians Crossing Road in Princeton NJ

Princeton NJ police are investigating a motor vehicle accident that seriously injured two people.

A 54-year-old West Windsor man, accompanied by his 8-year-old son, attempted to cross Washington Road in Princeton when he was reportedly struck by a car. According to authorities, the 8-year-old child was also hit by the vehicle.

The two victims had been riding their bikes, but they stopped to walk the bikes across Washington Road at a towpath.

Police said that a Honda Accord stopped so that the man and his son could get across the road safely. However, as they reached the shoulder of the road, a 2005 Jeep Liberty tried to pass the Honda and allegedly hit the two pedestrians.

According to police, the driver of the Jeep Liberty was a 28-year-old Dayton NJ resident.

Shortly after the accident, the adult victim was taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton to be treated for his injuries. Meanwhile, the son was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick.

Thankfully, neither victim suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of the accident.

Princeton police officers are currently investigating to determine if criminal charges should be filed.

If police ultimately determine that the driver of the car in this case acted recklessly, he could be charged with reckless driving. This is a very serious criminal charge that can potentially result in the offender being sentenced to up to 2 months in jail.

Additionally, the driver could be subject to significant civil penalties as a result of the pedestrian accident. Anyone who operates a motor vehicle in the State of New Jersey is expected to share the road with bicyclists and remain attentive when pedestrians attempt to cross the road. If a motor vehicle driver fails to yield or negligently hits a pedestrian or bicyclist, they may be liable for any injuries suffered by the victim.
