MADISON, NJ - A two-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon injured five and forced portions of Woodland Road and Prospect Street to be closed for several hours during the ensuing cleanup and investigation.
According to Madison police, shortly after 2:30 p.m. on Sunday a 2008 Nissan sedan driven by Canice Wall, 29, of Morristown allegedly ran a stop sign on Prospect Street as he was traveling southbound. He was struck by a 2004 Jeep wagon driven by Deborah Losapio, 59, of Randolph. She was traveling east on Woodland Road.
Wall, front passenger Courtney Evans, 27, of Morristown, and three children, ages 9, 8 and 4 seated in the rear, were taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital for injuries sustained in the crash. Wall complained of neck and head pain and the 4-year-old, who was not properly restrained in a child car seat, complained of stomach pain.
All the accident were treated and released from the hospital. Losapio was not injured in the crash. The Madison Police Detective Bureau, Morris County Sheriff’s CIS Unit and the Madison Fire Department assisted in the investigation and cleanup of the scene.
Wall was issued summonses for disregarding a stop sign and failure to restrain a child in a child restraint device.
