Mechanical Malfunction Leads to Cranbury Pizza Shop Collision
A new report released by Cranbury Township Chief of Police Rickey Varga indicates that a mechanical malfunction is to blame for a car that slammed into Cranbury Pizza earlier this month. The collision happened on September 5, at the corner of Park Place East and North Main Street in Cranbury, at about 7:40 p.m.
According to the Tapinto.net of South Brunswick-Cranbury, the driver of a 1993 Ford F-150 was traveling west of Park Place when he failed to stop at the light. The truck struck the left rear of a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The Chevy was pushed forward in an “uncontrolled stop” and jumped the curb, running into a number of people eating outside of Cranbury Pizza.
In total, three people were injured in the collision, including two minors. One passenger in the Chevy Trailblazer was sent to the hospital with reported back pain, while two children under six years old were transported to University Medical Center of Princeton with minor injuries. The driver of the Ford was ticketed for unsafe driving.
Unfortunately, though, the criminal trouble didn’t stop with the accident. Witnesses to the crash caused further damage to the Ford truck that started the accident, and threatened the driver. Chief Varga said, “I am disappointed and concerned with the actions exhibited at the scene by individuals.” Police are still considering pressing criminal charges against the people at the scene that damaged the Ford F-150.
