A crash that resulted in the death of a 32-Plainsboro man is under investigation.

According to authorities, at 9:33 p.m. on Jan. 7th, West Windsor Police, Fire and Emergency Services responded to US Route 1 North near The Square at West Windsor (prior to the Meadow Road Overpass) for a report of a crash.

A preliminary investigation revealed two vehicles, a silver 2017 Hyundai Elantra driven by a 29-year-old North Brunswick man, a gray 2008 Infiniti G35, driven by a 32-year-old Plainsboro man, were both traveling northbound on US Route 1 North when Infiniti struck the concrete traffic divider/barrier.

Officials say the Infiniti then came into the center lane and hit the back corner of the Hyundai. The Hyundai was pushed into a slide ending up nose first into the concrete traffic divider/barrier. The Infiniti went off the roadway to the right.

The Infiniti ultimately struck a PSE&G utility pole, went airborne and then struck a tree roof.

Police say the driver of the Infiniti was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported to the driver of the Hyundai or his 25-year-old wife.

Authorities closed U.S. Route 1 North for just over three hours to conduct the on-scene investigation while utility pole repair went on throughout the night by PSE&G.

Anyone with information on the crash or any witnesses are asked to contact Ptl. LaTorre at (609) 799-1222 or Latorre@westwindsorpolice.com.

Notifications were still being conducted and identities are not being released at this time officials said.
