Crash Causes Vehicle to Roll Over on Garden State Parkway in Cranford


There were no severe injuries reported for a crash that caused a car to roll over on a highway in Union County on Saturday morning. 

In the second violent collision that occurred on the highway in the area less than one hour apart, NJ State police were notified of a crash in the southbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway between exit 136-137 around 9:15 a.m. 

Units arrived at the scene and found all occupants out of a vehicle where the driver somehow lost control and slammed into the concrete median, then flipped over, causing the car to roll until it stopped, according to authorities. 

Cranford firefighters arrived at the scene to assist in search of the car smoke that could have resulted in a fire. 

The official cause of the crash is under investigation by The New Jersey State Police.
