Two drivers were injured in an auto accident on Route 206 in Princeton on October 27, 2008, according to a news report in the Times of Trenton. Min Wang, 57, of Ewing was reportedly traveling south on Route 206 between Quaker and Hutchinson roads when she failed to negotiate a right curve on the roadway.
Police said Wang crossed the double yellow line and hit the left side of a car driven by 84-year-old Candace Ashmun of Basking Ridge. The impact of the crash tore the left wheel of Ashmun’s car and caused it to roll over twice, according to the news report. Ashmun reportedly suffered cuts to her wrist and contusions. Wang also complained of pain and was transported to an area hospital.
In this Princeton rollover accident, initial police reports suggest that Min Wang was at fault. Police traffic investigators must certainly be looking into whether Wang was traveling above the speed limit, was distracted or was operating her vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
