Four-Car Crash on Route 1 Leaves Eleven Injured
Woodbridge, NJ (September 2, 2020) - A four-vehicle crash on northbound Route 1 left eleven people injured on Wednesday.
Authorities reported that all the injuries, including those to four minors, were moderate. One man, who sustained the most serious injuries, was airlifted to University Hospital in Newark. The remaining injured individuals were transported by ambulance to either University Hospital or Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Rahway.
Around 12:05 PM, Woodbridge police received a call about a crash at Route 1 and Randolph Avenue. Officers responded and found a 2007 Toyota Tundra and 2005 Lexus ES300 in the intersection. The Lexus had rear-ended the Toyota and then crashed into a 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The Toyota collided with a 2004 Subaru Outback.
The driver of the Lexus sustained a leg injury and was the most seriously injured individual. The four juveniles that were injured were also in the Lexus.
Three men riding in the Toyota were taken to hospitals to receive treatment for their injuries, as was the Chevrolet driver. The Subaru driver was uninjured and able to drive away from the accident.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation closed Route 1 to allow authorities to investigate and clear the accident. The road was reopened around 4:30 PM on Wednesday.
