Two men were injured Wednesday afternoon in a multi-car accident on Eisenhower Parkway, authorities said.
At around 2:40 p.m., two cars collided at the entrance of the Livingston Mall on Eisenhower Parkway. A 29 year-old man from Fairfield, driving a 2008 Ford van struck a 2007 Ford Sedan, being driven by a 23-year-old man from Kenvil, NJ, said Detective Sgt. Anthony Dippold.
While traveling southbound on Eisenhower Parkway, the sedan was struck by the van after taking the jughandle across South Orange Avenue. The driver of the van was taken to Saint Barnabas Medical Center by the Livingston First Aid Squad with head injuries, said Dippold.
The driver of the sedan had to be extricated from the vehicle by the Livingston Fire Department. He was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital by the Livingston First Aid Squad with injuries to his head, torso and arms.
The preliminary investigation accident suggests that one of the drivers may have ran a red light, said Dippold. However, there is no official cause at this time and the accident remains under investigation.
