A horrific two-vehicle crash injured as many as 14 people Tuesday evening. One of the victims was left in critical condition. The driver of the van was trapped and had to be rescued by coworkers. The person who was critically injured was flown by medevac helicopter. He was taken to the Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune. According to police Sgt. Joseph Goertz., the other victims were sent to Kimball Medical Center and Ocean Medical Center in Brick.

The accident occurred at around 7 p.m. at the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue and Pine Street. The van that was struck was driven by Tasha Carter of Paterson. This was one of two vehicles heading to Newark with workers who had dropped off new cars at First Energy Park Tuesday evening. Carter was immediately taken to a hospital after being rescued from the wreckage by coworkers. Her coworkers were in a van ahead of hers. Conditions of Carter and others involved in the crash were not immediately available. The intersection is now open but was closed for many hours after the incident. Coworkers are still in shock and recounted the moments of terror when the crash happened. They described that glass shattered everywhere and the destruction of the vehicles. The coworkers got out of the first van, which had turned onto Pine Street, and ran back to the crash scene.

After the accident, everyone was in pain and in need of medical attention. They said they found their friends moaning in pain or in stunned silence amid the wreckage of the van.

Ronald Bradley of Newark, a passenger in the first van says, “Once we turned the corner we all heard an explosion, so we looked back and saw the crash.”Bradley said he was one of 12 people in the van which had been traveling on New Hampshire Avenue and turned onto Pine. He said Carter was driving another van with 12 passengers when the crash happened.

The passengers of these accidents were left in physical pain. When someone is involved in such an accident, a peace of mind is needed. These types of accidents can leave someone out of work and having to deal with medical bills. If you have been injured in a car accident, please visit
