Hamilton, NJ (April 24, 2023) – The Hamilton Police Division confirmed that 35-year-old Joseph J Celinski lost his life as a result of an automobile accident that took place on Saturday evening in Hamilton.

According to reports provided by HPD, at approximately 4:45 p.m. on April 22, 39-year-old Steven Brokowsky was leaving Killarney’s Publick House, which is located on Whitehorse-Mercerville Road.

As he turned north onto the roadway, his 2019 Honda Accord sedan sideswiped the 2015 Land Rover SUV.

The impact of the collision forced the Land Rover off the roadway, where it crashed into a telephone pole.

The driver of the Land Rover, identified as Celinski, was fatally wounded in the crash. He was pronounced dead at the scene by responding officers.

Brokowsky suffered injuries in the crash. He was transported to Robert Wood Johnsen University Hospital in Hamilton, New Jersey, by ambulance for further medical care.
