At-fault driver determined in fatal November crash

WOODBRIDGE, NJ – New Jersey State Police have determined that Kristin Leary was the at-fault driver in the two-vehicle accident in which she perished last November.

A lengthy investigation determined the 29-year-old was driving the wrong way on the New Jersey Turnpike on November 25, 2019 when her vehicle collided head-on with another car and killed her.

Leary was driving a 2008 Honda north in the southbound lane when she collided with a 2013 Subaru driven by 23-year-old Yuce Cheng.

The accident occurred around 1:46 a.m. at milepost 94.1 in Woodbridge. Leary was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cheng was transported to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick and suffered serious injuries.

New Jersey State Trooper Alejandro Goez determined Leary to be at fault in the accident.

Goez stated that the investigation had just been completed and had taken much longer than the usual five- to six-week time span.
