Firefighters Respond to Serious MVA on NJ Turnpike

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP (Mercer County) – May 20, 2007 - Firefighters from the Washington Township Fire Department responded to a serious motor vehicle accident in the early morning hours of May 20, 2007.

Firefighters from Washington Township Fire Department were dispatched at 3:45 AM to the New Jersey Turnpike mile post 64.6 Northbound for a motor vehicle accident with entrapment.  Mercer County Central Communications also dispatched the Hightstown Fire Company since they were receiving numerous calls with conflicting mile markers (mm 64.8 is the border between East Windsor and Washington Township).  Firefighters were notified en route that State Police on scene were confirming one person trapped, unconscious and not breathing.

Washington Township Engine Company 40 and Rescue 140 along with Hightstown Rescue 41 and Engine 41 arrived almost simultaneously to find a Jeep Grand Cherokee off the road into the woods at mile marker 64.7.  Fire crews set up lights and went in service with rescue tools.  Reports indicated that the vehicle had been stopped in the travel lane for an unknown reason when it was struck from behind by a tractor trailer.  A total of three victims were located in the vehicle and two were immediately removed by EMS personnel at the scene.  A third victim trapped in the rear seat was determined by paramedics at the scene to be fatally injured.  

After rescue crews had removed the roof from the vehicle, State Police at the scene suspended the operation while NJSP accident investigators and detectives from the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office photographed the scene and took measurements.  Once the investigation was completed the Washington Township Fire Department completed the extrication and recovery of the deceased and assisted the medical examiner removing the victim from the car.   Fire crews finally left the scene at 6:30 AM and returned to the station in time for 0700 shift change.
