Cranbury Road crash injured several people on Sept. 6

Seven people were injured, including two children and two seniors, when a Chevrolet Impala struck a Honda Odyssey on Cranbury road near Perry Drive in West Windsor on Sept. 6.

A 45-year-old woman from Plainsboro was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Impala and was heading north when she approached a curved section of roadway near Perry Drive. The driver of the 2012 Honda Odyssey, a 40-year-old man from West Windsor, was traveling south on Cranbury Road. It was raining and the roadway was wet. The Chevrolet Impala entered into the southbound lane and collided with the Honda Odyssey. 

As a result of the collision, two people were trapped inside of the Honda Odyssey. Members of West Windsor Volunteer Fire Company No. 1, Station 43, responded to the scene to extricate the two victims from the Honda.

Six people in the Honda were injured, including a 68-year-old woman who suffered a serious head trauma as a result of the crash. She was taken to the Capital Health Regional Medial Center in Trenton. A 70-year-old man had chest pain and was taken to the Princeton Medical Center. A 36-year-old woman suffered serious trauma to the leg and was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. A four-year-old boy and an eight-year-old boy both had facial lacerations as a result of the crash. The driver of the Honda had a wrist injury and was taken to the Princeton Medical Center. The driver of the Impala had back and neck pain but did not want to be taken to the hospital.

The collision is still under investigation. If you witnessed the crash, please contact Traffic Officer Sabatino at (609) 799-1222 or Sabatino@westwindsorpolice.com.
