West Windsor Woman Dies from Injuries Sustained in Weekend Crash

westwindsorpoliceA West Windsor resident died Tuesday as a result of injuries she sustained in a crash in the township over the weekend.

Ruby Chiang, 43, was pinned under a vehicle Sunday morning in a two-car crash on Princeton-Hightstown Road at the intersection with Slayback Drive.

A 2004 Toyota operated by Michael Martinez, 18, of West Windsor was traveling west on Princeton-Hightstown Road Sunday morning when a 2014 Acura operated by Ruby Chiang’s husband, Robert Chiang, was traveling east on Princeton-Hightstown Road, and turned left into the entrance of Community Park at Slayback Drive, police said. The Toyota struck the Acura on the passenger side as it traveled across the westbound lanes of Princeton-Hightstown Road.

Both drivers, as well as Ruby Chiang and their two 10-year-old children, were transported to Capital Health at Fuld for treatment. Friends of the family said Ruby Chiang died peacfully Tuesday morning.

The collision is still under investigation by the West Windsor Township Police Department. Any witnesses are asked to call Officer Nick LaRocca at (609) 799-1222.

  • It’s anne m., krystal… this is such a tragedy!!! He’s my eye Dr… I can’t believe two 10 y/o children lost their mother… I am so sad… prayers and condolences to their families!

  • Why are anonymous allowed to be on here with no names and insult and defame?? The_Lone_Avenger is a stalker, he stalks me every where I go. Not only I am a victim for a runaway Lexus, but I now spend my time trying to help other and not allow automakers like Toyota/Lexus, GM get away with murdering people.. Please you should ban someone like him and not allow anonymous be on the sites.

  • Thank you Shannon so much for standing up to the troll… Check him out, he used to call himself The_Mask_Avenger and I exposed him on Twitter now he checked his name to The_Lone_Wolf. It so disgusting that he has no compassion for humanity. Imagine what he does for money. Toyota and Lexus are known to suddenly accelerate. Please Google and read about what automakers do to us.

  • My sympathies to the families of everyone involved in this tragedy, especially the Chiangs. Playing the blame game is perhaps natural, but pointless, except perhaps to point out that we have a public health epidemic in traffic fatalities, not individuals doing something right/wrong.

    The speed limit there is 50mph and let’s assume neither driver was speeding – the crash might have never happened if the road was designed for 40mph and neither driver was speeding.

  • I can’t believe you can put this up here. To think that we live in a world where people hear of a tragedy like this and don’t only convey compassion is disgusting. You are only hearing the from one source. You should be ashamed. Lift people up. If you don’t have anything compassionate to say, leave your gross comments to yourself. Know one wants to see them.

  • I think you should your comment. This is a tragedy and I’m sure Mr. Chiang has already suffered enough. No need to pile on with the blame.

  • Another Toyota killed a person and put few in the hospital. Toyota and Lexus are known for unintended acceleration.
