BURLINGTON COUNTY, NJ – A child was airlifted after a two-vehicle accident that injured five others in North Hanover on Tuesday afternoon.
According to NJ.com, a car with five children inside drove through a stop sign at the intersection of Jacobstown New Egypt Road and Meany Road at about 4:30. It then collided with another vehicle.
One of the children was taken by helicopter to Cooper University Hospital and the four other children were transported to a hospital in Mount Hope. The driver in the car with the children was not injured, but the other driver was taken to a Trenton hospital. Thankfully, none of the injuries were considered life-threatening.
Law enforcement sited the children’s carseats as protection that likely saved their lives.
An investigation is ongoing. Drugs and alcohol did not factor in the cause.
