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.


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

  2. 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.

      1. 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!
