Crashes in Manville and Parsippany Wreck Cars, Cause Injuries in NJ
Posted on Jun 20, 2013
A two-car crash in Manville on May 23 was reminiscent of a crash that had occurred on the same property one year earlier, authorities said.
The accident occurred around 1:30 p.m. on the Adesa Auto Auction property. Manville Police Lt. Tom Herbs reported that three people had sustained injuries in the accident: two patients complained of general pain, and one had said there was a severe pain in his shoulder. Despite these injuries, all three people involved in the crash refused medical attention at the site.
According to local news reports, crashes are not uncommon at this particular location; roughly one year ago, authorities received reports of a five-car crash at Adesa Auto Auction. The accident took place around 7 a.m. on May 9, 2012 inside the detailing building, after one vehicle allegedly struck four parked cars.
Earlier this week, another two-car crash took place in Parsippany.
According to State Police, a flatbed tow truck was traveling down Route 80 East on May 16 when the vehicle it was carrying suddenly became loose and rolled backward onto the highway. A car following behind the truck was unable to swerve to avoid a collision and crashed into the fallen vehicle just east of Exit 42 for Littleton Road at around 11:00 a.m.
According to the state Department of Transportation, the accident shut down the right and center lanes for a time while workers cleared the roadway. State Police have said that no injuries were reported because of the crash.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident, and no charges have yet been filed.
We wish those injured or traumatized in these crashes a full recovery.
