Another MVA, reportedly alcohol related, has just taken place on Squankum Road, causing delays in the area as well.

If you are headed to NY, Route 9 may be the best alternative at this time.

Drivers should use extra caution and awareness of the drunk drivers on the roads during the Holiday. TLS-CCP

  1. It’s beyond me why people think they have to celebrate a holiday by getting drunk and then driving while intoxicated. I guess they want tto show their independence.

  2. A Study at the University of UTAH concludes:

    When the subjects talked on a cell phone—either holding it in their hands, or using a headset—they showed the same signs of impairment, and to similar degrees, as when they drove drunk.

    When drunk, not a single subject rear-ended the pace car in the experiment. However, three of the subjects crashed into the car while talking on the phone.

    Buckle up everyone in your vehicle at all times. Keep one car length for every 10 mph behind the vehicle in front of you. (At 60 mph that’s six car lengths.) The faster you go the longer it takes to stop or manuever as your reaction time becomes greatly reduced when your sober and off the phone.

  3. Why does almost every accident story need to mention whether there was alcohol involved? Granted alcohol does contribute to many accidents there are dozens of accidents in this town that occur plainly because of stupidity and disregard for other people. It just seems almost bias that the scoop needs to mention alcohol before they even know any real facts of how an accident may have occurred!

  4. just so anyone with questions for prayers, there were three people killed and four seriously injured. no names have been released yet.

  5. Just proves time and time again how critical it is to wear seatbelts all the time when in a moving vehicle. The only reason the 4th person in the vehicle survived (although his medical condition is still unknown) is because he was wearing a seatbelt. Buckle up U.S.A. it could save your life!

  6. we nebach have this issue too when people want to celebrate purim! we should remember this story while we are celebrating and tempted to drink and drive to “just one more seudah……”

  7. Here we go already jumping to conclusions about alcohol being involved. It’s a tragedy 3 people died before we start bashing the deceased WAIT for the facts.

  8. Squawk box or Pine Box.

    Your choice.

    Don’t play Russian Roulette with my familiy’s life.

    By the way, check your headlights, brake lights and turn signals, make sure they work and USE THEM. Check your tires too, worn treads and wrong pressure could also kill you and G-d knows who else.

    You want to C’V (G-d forbid) be killed or be a killer. I didn’t think so.

    THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

  9. The reference to alchohol was reported on news stations elsewhere as well. I don’t see the constant reference to alchohol that you mention. Maybe check your own facts and read a few articles before jumping to your own conclusions.

  10. Hey, where are all those people who bash lakewood drivers and say lkwd has the most and worse accidents? the accident on the GSP wasnt jewish or ppl from lkwd how come no nasty comments now?

  11. To number 14, lakewood is horrible for driving…..Here is a comment for you. I was at a stop sign and got hit, waiting with my signal on to make a left on to Clifton ave, one lane and I still got hit, stopped…
    You hold your life in your hands going through Lakewood, I try not to…
    a boat would be safer…

  12. editor: why put a picture of an accident that isn’t related to the article, the posted picture is not the accident that happened on the GSP this morning.

  13. Just drove by the site -divider all twisted -nebech BTW CBS just reported this am that heavy fog not drinking may have been the cause
