A driver sustained minor injuries after a single-vehicle crash on a portion of Route 206 in Princeton last Thursday.

Police investigating the accident say that the driver was driving on Route 206 near Lovers Lane at around 5:30 a.m. when the driver seemingly lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll over on the roadway.

Emergency medical services said that the driver suffered minor injuries and complained of wrist pain. The driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment and evaluation.

Route 206 was closed in both directions while investigation was ongoing.

We would like to send our sympathies to the driver who was injured in this crash. We hope the driver recovers fully and that the driver quickly recovers from the injuries.

Vehicular Accidents

Vehicular crashes are one of the most common causes of injuries and fatalities in the state of New Jersey. In a report published by the New Jersey State Police Fatal Accidents Investigation Unit, there were 591 recorded fatal crashes that occurred in 2017, which caused 624 fatalities.

In 158 of the 591 crashes, Driving While Intoxicated (alcohol and/or drugs) was listed as the major contributing factor. There were 174 people killed as a result of these 158 crashes. Speeding was another major contributing factor to these crashes being listed as a factor in 61 of the crashes. Driving while distracted seems to be the biggest factor as it was listed as a cause for 196 crashes.

We urge drivers to observe and follow the laws while driving, and to remain focused while driving so that they can react accordingly to situations that may suddenly pop up on the roadway. Drivers should be more careful when driving while visibility is low, and they should also check their car before going on the roadway. Being more diligent and prepared can help lessen accidents on the roads of New Jersey.
