NJ Police Report Parsippany and Morristown Car Accident Sites Cleared
Posted on Jun 07, 2013
Police report that two crash scenes, one following a Parsippany car accident and the other in Morristown, have been cleared and the roadways reopened.
The first incident occurred shortly before 11 a.m. on May 16. State Police have said that a vehicle fell off a flatbed tow truck while the truck was traveling down Route 80 East. A car following the truck crashed into the fallen vehicle just east of Exit 42 for Littleton Road.
According to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the accident shut down the right and center lanes for a short time. State Police have said that no injuries were reported in the crash.
Less than 24 hours later, State Police received a call describing a three-car crash in Morristown that sent two vehicles off the roadway on Route 287.
According to the police report, a blue BMW traveling north overturned near Exit 35 shortly before 10 a.m. Two other vehicles crashed as a result—a red Acura and a white Lexus—one of which also flipped over.
Multiple injuries were reported, and emergency responders were dispatched to the scene, but it is unclear if any victims were sent to the hospital for treatment, State Police said.
According to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, the right lane of Route 287 north was blocked following the accident. The lane was successfully cleared and reopened for traffic at 11:08 a.m.
No charges have yet been filed in either accident case, and both accidents remain under investigation.
We wish the victims involved in both of these crashes full and fast recoveries.
