A description of the vehicle that fled the scene was not available on Thursday. The crash remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call North Brunswick Police Detective Paul Pappas Jr. at (732) 247-0922 or Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office Detective David Abromaitis at (732) 745-4436.


  1. So it seems over the last few months more able-bodied Princeton residents died from car accidents than from COVID. Shouldn’t we ban cars instead of schools?

    1. This is not factually correct. At least 17 Princeton residents have died of COVID-19 since the start of March. We are aware of one Princeton resident being killed as a result of a car crash, referenced in the above story, over the same time period.

      1. I said “able-bodied”, which means not living in an assisted living facility or needing assistance of a home aide. You have better statistics, but from what I read, it seems all victims in Princeton have been elderly.

        1. We don’t know how many people would have died if people didn’t stay home and the virus spread more. Plus, hospitals were overwhelmed as it was. Some hospitals were on divert status. We don’t know of any young people in our area dying from the virus but ER doctors have told us they have seen many young people with severe symptoms who struggled to get healthy again.
