Children Injured When Car Crashes into Restaurant
A woman and her two children were injured in a New Jersey auto accident after her Range Rover crashed into a White Castle restaurant. According to an NJ.com news report, the crash occurred at the White Castle on Somerset Street in New Brunswick. Officials say the SUV drifted into a 2005 Toyota Camry before veering out of control and crashing into the restaurant.
The vehicle ended up halfway through the front door. The 40-year-old driver and the two boys, ages 10 and 11, were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. The four employees in the restaurant and the driver of the Camry all escaped without injury. The driver of the Range Rover was issued a summons for careless driving.
Under New Jersey law, drivers can face citations for carelessly causing injury accidents. According to NJSA 39:4-97, “A person who drives a vehicle carelessly, or without due caution and circumspection, in a manner so as to endanger, or be likely to endanger, a person or property, shall be guilty of careless driving.”
