EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The intersection of Tices Lane and Ryders Lane was once again the scene of a serious accident yesterday. Two fatalities occurred in the same location on December 20, 2016, despite the 23 traffic lights and signs displayed at the nexus of the two heavily-traveled roads.

19-year-old Blint Y. Pronik of East Brunswick was seriously injured in a collision at the intersection of Tices Lane and Ryders Lane on Wednesday afternoon.
