The crash is under investigation by South Brunswick Police Traffic Safety Bureau Officer Michael Leung. Police are checking to see if speed was a factor in the crash.


  1. Does anyone else find it weird that this stretch of Ridge Road is not on the way from _anywhere_ in Mercer County to Princeton? Was this woman lost to begin with? Perhaps that explains things.

      1. Look at a map. Look where the Mercer County boundaries lie. Look at where Princeton and Ridge Rd are, and tell me how this commute makes sense.

        1. Get that, but the person could have been dropping off a loved one to work or school or something. A lot of possibilities.
