Newark, NJ – Vehicle Splits in Half after Crash on Mount Prospect Ave & Elwood Ave, Two Injured

Newark, NJ (March 10, 2023) – Two people were hospitalized following a motor vehicle accident that took place in Newark’s North Ward early Friday morning, March 10.

At approximately 2:10 a.m., emergency crews were called to provide assistance at the scene of an automobile accident that took place on Mount Prospect Avenue.

Preliminary reports show that at least two vehicles collided on Mount Prospect Avenue in the area of Elwood Avenue. The force of the collision caused one of the vehicles to split in half. A male that was inside of the split vehicle was ejected, causing significant injuries.

The man and a second victim at the scene were both transported to area hospitals for emergency medical treatment.

The police out of Newark are actively investigating to determine what caused the crash to occur.

We hope the injured victims recover quickly. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Car Accidents in New Jersey

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be devastating. We see thousands of people injured due to accidents that take place in our state every month. There are many instances where people are left with serious injuries due to the negligent actions of other motorists. Speeding, driving while intoxicated, and engaging in other negligent actions continue to be leading factors in crashes across our state.

Being involved in a crash can force you into an area hospital, where you have to go through extensive medical treatment and spend weeks in recovery. In New Jersey, it is all too common to see people left with serious injuries like injuries to the spinal cord, compound fractures, and other significant injuries that dramatically impact their health and well-being.

There are many instances where victims never fully recover from their injuries. Instead, they are left permanently disabled and forced to deal with long-term consequences.
