New Year's Eve Crash Sends Four to Hospital
Two Hillsdale residents remained in critical condition Tuesday.
A three-car accident injured four Hillsdale residents New Year's Eve, according to Police Sgt. Dan McLaughlin.
The accident occured at about 6:17 p.m. on Hillsdale Avenue between Saddlewood Drive and Yessler Way, according to McLaughlin. A 77-year-old man rear-ended another car driven by a 17-year-old girl. The car then crossed into the opposite lane and collided head-on with a third car.
The drivers of all three cars, as well as a woman who was a passenger in the third car, were hospitalized after the crash, McLaughlin said. The woman was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center by a medevac helicopter which landed at the field across from George G. White Middle School.
The 17-year-old suffered only minor injuries. Two of the other residents remained in critical condition and another was still in the hospital under observation as of Tuesday morning, McLaughlin said.
The accident was still under investigation Tuesday.
