A car crash with injuries reported on an NJ highway sent one person to a Newark hospital suffering serious injuries early Sunday morning.

An initial investigation placed the location of the early morning crash in the vicinity of exit seven just before 5 am where emergency responders rushed to the scene after they received reports of an accident with an ejection and injuries at that location.

Fast responding Belleville rescue crews arrived to find the severely injured victim on the roadway according to preliminary reports.

The unidentified victim was rushed to University Hospital where doctors began threatening their injuries.

The impact of the crash caused the car to overturn reports said.

Police are actively investigating the cause of the crash as they closed both directions of NJ-21 as of 5:02 a.m.
