EWING (Mercer) – A single-vehicle crash left the driver hurt and a utility pole snapped in half this afternoon (Sunday, Nov. 19, 2023). Ewing Township police, firefighters and EMS personnel were dispatched to the 500 block of Grand Avenue at 12:37 p.m. for a reported overturned vehicle. Emergency crews arrived to find the vehicle resting on its roof in front of the West Trenton branch U.S. Post Office. An adjacent utility pole that had been struck by the vehicle was broken off near its base and left hanging from the overhead wires which it had previously supported. The driver was not trapped but was injured and was transported to hospital via a Ewing EMS ambulance. Grand Avenue was closed between West Upper Ferry Road and Summit Avenue for a time while a tow truck removed the wreckage and utility workers worked to make the area around the damaged pole safe. The cause of the crash was under investigation by Ewing police.
