Route 1 Accident Saturday Resulted in Fatality

A Toyota Camry veered off of Route 1 Saturday afternoon while traveling southbound and then crashed into a utility pole. The passenger in the car died after being taken to the hospital, police said.

The one-vehicle accident happened just after 1 p.m. near Eden Way. Both of the Camry’s occupants, residents of Lawrence Township, were transported to Capital Health System at Fuld by West Windsor Township EMS. The passenger was pronounced dead at Capital Health System at Fuld. The driver sustained minor injuries and was subsequently released from the hospital. The identities of both occupants are being withheld pending further investigation, police said.

Due to the severe damage to the utility pole, PSE&G and the New Jersey Department of Transportation responded to the scene. The Route 1 corridor suffered heavy traffic delays for several hours due to several traffic signals being without power due to the crash.

Police are asking any witnesses to the incident to contact Sgt. Marylouise Dranchak or Officer Kyle Brown of the West Windsor Township Police Department at (609) 799-1222.
