Linden, NJ – Two Injured in DWI Crash on I-278 near Morses Mill Rd

Linden, NJ (April 27, 2023) – Two people were transported to area hospitals with serious injuries following an automobile accident that took place in the Linden area.

The accident was reported at around 7:00 p.m. on April 25.

Reports provided by the Linden Police Traffic Bureau indicate that a 2020 Nissan Altima driven by 45-year-old Leslie Davis was heading west on Interstate 278 during the evening hours. For unknown reasons, the vehicle crashed into a 1999 Buick LeSabre, which was crossing at the intersection of Morses Mill Road.

Both drivers were severely injured as a result of the crash. The two victims were transported by ambulance to Newark University Hospital for the treatment of injuries.

Davis was later arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated.

The incident is currently being investigated by the Linden Police Traffic Bureau.

Our thoughts are with the two people injured as a result of this crash, as we hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in New Jersey

Every year, thousands of automobile accidents take place in New Jersey that leave victims of serious injuries. There are many instances where these accidents are a result of negligent and reckless drivers. We often see acts of negligence contribute to car crashes that take place on our state’s busy roads. Impairment tends to be one of the leading factors. Driving while impaired can increase the risks of a motor vehicle accident taking place for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common include:

  • Impaired vision: Alcohol can impair your vision, making it more difficult to see and respond to hazards on the road.
  • Decreased reaction time: Alcohol can slow down your ability to react in time to other vehicles or objects, which can be especially dangerous in emergency situations.
  • Impaired judgment: Alcohol can impair your decision-making abilities, making it difficult to make sound decisions while driving.
  • Fatigue: Alcohol can make you feel tired or drowsy, which can impair your driving abilities and increase the risk of falling asleep at the wheel.
