Three vehicles were involved in a crash on Saturday night that resulted in three people being taken to the Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton. One passenger had life-threatening injuries due to the crash.
Just before 8 p.m. on Saturday, a 61-year old resident of West Windsor was driving a 2005 Toyota Prius and was heading southbound on Nassau Park Boulevard, approaching the Quakerbridge Road intersection, and was attempting to make a left turn onto the road. A 45-year-old Hopewell resident who was driving a 2020 Nissan Armada was traveling northbound on Province Line Road coming from Lawrence Township, and was approaching the Quakerbridge Road intersection. The driver was attempting to continue straight through the intersection. A 44-year-old resident of Trenton was driving a 2007 Hyundai Vera Cruz and was traveling westbound on Quakerbridge Road, attempting to turn right onto Nassau Park Boulevard. There is a traffic light at the intersection.
The Prius that was making a left collided with the Nissan Armada in the intersection. The crash sent the Nissan Armada careening into the Hyundai Vera Cruz. Two people in the Prius were trapped. Police, firefighters, and emergency rescue squads responded to the scene and were able to rescue the driver and front-seat passenger in the Prius.
Police said the driver of the Prius had abdominal injuries, while a 64-year-old passenger who is a resident of West Windsor had a life-threatening aortic aneurysm. The driver of the Hyundai suffered neck and back injuries. The driver of the Nissan Armada and a 42-year-old Hopewell resident who was a passenger did not report any injuries.
A portion of Quakerbridge Road and one Route 1 exit ramp were closed for about two and a half hours while first responders assisted the people injured in the crash.
