WEST WINDSOR, NJ (MERCER)–Last night at 8:37 p.m. (May 23, 2021), a Grey colored Nissan Maxima operated by a 29-year-old resident of Trenton, NJ was traveling north on Clarksville Road approaching the curve at the Meadow Road intersection. The Nissan crossed over the double yellow line and side swiped a red Ford Escape that was traveling south on Clarksville Road.
The driver of the Ford, of Holland, PA pulled over after her vehicle was struck. After striking the Ford, the Nissan continued north on Clarksville Road with both the front and rear driver side tires over the double yellow line in the southbound lane of travel.
At the intersection with Meadow Road, the Nissan collided head on with a white Chevrolet that was traveling south.
Upon the arrival of patrol officers, the driver of the Nissan was unconscious and had no pulse. Lifesaving efforts were performed, and Driver #1 was transported to UPPMC. However, he was pronounced dead at 9:23 pm. All four occupants of the Chevrolet were also transported UPPMC with numerous non-life-threatening moderate/serious injuries. The driver of the Ford sustained no injuries.
Investigation on scene indicated that the Nissan was traveling at a high rate of speed and was unable to negotiate the curve on Clarksville Road which caused the Nissan to strike both vehicles.
The roadway was closed for just over three hours. The ongoing investigation is being led by Traffic Officer Brown under the direction of Traffic Sgt. Bal.
