Five 18-Year-Olds Sustain Minor Injuries in Pennington Crash

hopewell policeFive 18-year-olds suffered minor injuries when a van they were in was struck by a car on Route 31 in Pennington Tuesday night, Sept. 8.

Just after 9 p.m. the Hopewell Township Police Department responded to a motor vehicle crash at the intersection of Pennington Road and Denow Road.

Divya Seshadri, 21, of Dayton, was driving a 2015 Toyota Sienna mini-van heading south on Pennington Road when she attempted to make a left turn onto Denow Road. While she
was making the turn, a 2014 Dodge Ram pickup truck heading north that was driven by 55
year old Michael McCann of Colonial Beach, Va. struck the passenger side
of the Toyota mini-van. This collision forced the minivan off of the road, onto the
northbound side of Pennington Road. Left turns are prohibited along that section of Pennington Road and the intersection also has a “No Turns” sign, police said.

Seshadri and McCann were not injured. Five passengers in the mini-van, all 18, suffered minor
injuries or had complaints of pain. All of the passengers were transported to local hospitals for treatment.

The Pennington Fire Company, Pennington First Aid Squad, Lawrence Township First Aid Squad, and Capital Health Systems paramedics provided medical care. The Pennington Borough Police Department and Ewing Township Police Department assisted with traffic control at the scene.

The crash is still under investigation by Hopewell Township Police Officer James Klesney of the Seshadri was issued a summons for disregarding a traffic control signal for the improper left turn.
