Two people were injured Monday morning in a two vehicle collision, according to Mahwah police. Authorities say a 22-year-old New City man, driving a Honda, crashed into an SUV driven by a 43-year-old Oakland, New Jersey, woman. Both drivers required treatment at area hospitals, however, Mahwah police say that the male driver suffered more serious injuries in the head-on crash.
The Route 202 Pennsylvania car accident was first reported shortly after 9:00 a.m. Monday. The man from New City was pulled from the wreckage. Law enforcement says the man had no pulse. Emergency responders used a defibrillator at the scene and were able to find a pulse.
The Ramapo student was first transported in a Mahwah ambulance to Ramapo College, where he was transferred to a helicopter for transport to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center. Authorities say that the man sustained critical injuries in the wreck. The hospital did not release details of the injuries, other than to say that they are critical and medical personnel worked in efforts to stabilize the patient.
The Oakland woman was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern with neck, chest and back pain.
Police say that the two vehicles “hit almost frame to frame head-on,” in the Route 202 car accident. Both vehicles were severely damaged. The two people involved in the accident suffered serious personal injuries.
Jersey City personal injuries lawyers know that head-on crashed involve extreme forces that can cause devastating injuries.
The Monday morning Route 202 accident remains under investigation.
