SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Commuters are facing a couple of traffic woes this evening as two separate crashes between 6-7 p.m. have closed some busy traffic routes, police said.

A one-car accident on Ridge Road near Indian Fields Elementary School involved a car and a utility pole and wires are currently down across the road, causing the road to be closed between the Five Corners intersection in Dayton and Route 535, police said.

A second accident took out the traffic signal box at the intersection of Route 130 south and Route 522, Capt. Jim Ryan said.
