Car Crashes Through Barrier, Falls into Ditch in Wawa’s Parking Lot in Kearny

Authorities in Hudson County are trying to determine how the driver of a car plunged into a ditch in Kearny this afternoon.

According to preliminary reports, emergency responders were called to Wawa’s parking lot at around 4 p.m. to investigate reports of a crash with occupants reportedly trapped inside a vehicle.

When police and firefighters arrived, they found that a vehicle crashed through a wooden barrier and fell about 4ft into the ditch.
